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 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.
