The Research Exchange Forum events have been relaunched to promote faculty-wide research sharing. These regular events, open to all, are intended to support the transdisciplinary research culture within the Faculty, and to provide an informal hub where faculty and graduate students’ ongoing research can be discussed.
The popular dietary supplement ubiquinone, also known as Coenzyme Q10, is widely believed to function as an antioxidant, protecting cells against damage from free radicals. But a new study by scientists at McGill University finds that ubiquinone is not a crucial antioxidant -- and that consuming it is unlikely to provide any benefit.

The organisms commonly known as blue-green algae have proliferated much more rapidly than other algae in lakes across North America and Europe over the past two centuries – and in many cases the rate of increase has sharply accelerated since the mid-20th century, according to an international team of researchers led by scientists at McGill University.
Researchers at McGill University have developed a new, low-cost method to build DNA nanotubes block by block – a breakthrough that could help pave the way for scaffolds made from DNA strands to be used in applications such as optical and electronic devices or smart drug-delivery systems.
Researchers from Canada, the UK, Sweden and the US have discovered more than 30 genes that strongly affect an antibody involved in allergies and asthma. Some of the genes could provide targets for drugs to treat those conditions, according to the international team’s study, published online in Nature on Feb. 18.
A new SSHRC grant will boost the Faculty of Education’s venerated McGill Journal of Education, strengthening the peer-reviewed journal’s commitment to the open access movement. The McGill Journal of Education (MJE), which will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, will utilize funding from this federal program to help increase and diversify their online presence in the changing world of academic publishing.
