A place in the top 10

Thu, 2015-01-08 16:34

Research led by Prof François Barthelat in the Department of Mechanical Engineering earned a spot on Quebec's list of top 10 scientific discoveries in 2014. Inspired by natural structures like seashells, Barthelat and his team developed a technique to strengthen glass. They were able to make glass 200 times more resistant to breakage by engraving micro-cracks in wavy configurations on its surface. The pattern of micro-cracks guided larger cracks and absorbed impact energy.

PhD Oral Defense: The M1AAP and M17LAP Aminopeptidases of Plasmodium falciparum Malaria

PhD Oral Defense of Rency Tesy Mathew, Institute of Parasitology

The intra-erythrocytic stage of the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, employs two metallo-aminopeptidases, termed PfM1AAP and PfM17LAP, in the terminal stages of hemoglobin digestion. Inhibitors of these enzymes exhibit anti-malarial activity and, hence, either one or both enzymes are potential anti-malarial drug targets.


Everyone in the McGill community is welcome to attend a PhD oral defense. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of our PhD candidates.

PhD Oral Defense: Microstructure and Surface Characteristics of Fried Batter Coatings

PhD Oral Defense of Jamshid Rahimi, Department of Bioresource Engineering

Effects of batter formulation, pre-drying time and pre-heating temperature on surface characteristics and microstructure of fried batter using scanning electron microscopy and image processing techniques were investigated. The study also evaluated different fractions of inter-particle spaces of fried batter when occupied by air, moisture and fat. The effects of the parameters on porosity and mass transfer of fried batter were also studied.
