In a collaborative and multidisciplinary attempt to pull together Montreal-based research, we are organizing a working group that is critically approaching food systems, security and sustainability at different levels: institutions, Montreal and its peri-urban and rural surroundings, as well as the broader ‘Global South,’ which is facing immediate issues of food crisis.
Visit the Sustainability Research Symposium on March 14th for sepakers, posters, discussions, and lunch!

(Athletics' Jill Barker) As a young psychologist, James Sallis was interested in exploring the motivation behind getting people to exercise. But it wasn’t long before he discovered that existing theories designed to improve exercise adherence were, for the most part, ineffective. Sallis, who is speaking in Montreal this week, is this year’s winner of the Bloomberg Manulife Prize for the Promotion of Active Health.
Scientists have announced a small but important step in the development of an effective cattle vaccine to prevent bovine tuberculosis. They have identified a "biomarker" using sophisticated molecular technology that allows them to predict vaccine efficacy. David Williams, chairman of the Badger Trust, which strongly supports vaccination of both cattle and badgers, said: "We welcome this refinement in laboratory technique, part of the progress towards the long-awaited goal of an effective cattle vaccine.
