As Montreal's new light rail or LRT system is set to open its first branch of service this summer, researchers at TRAM, a transportation research group at McGill University, have released an overview of how Montrealers say they plan to use (or not use) the new system, based on surveys conducted between 2019 to 2022.
A new study by a McGill University PhD student is looking into the effects of gaslighting in romantic relationships. The term is used to describe a form of psychological abuse in which a person or group causes someone to question their own sanity, memories, or perception of reality.
About one in 10 people are reported to have a penicillin allergy. Those patients are more likely to be prescribed alternative antibiotics that are often less effective against certain infections.

McGill University and Moderna to expand collaborations with new projects in Lipid Nanoparticle research
McGill University today announced it has signed agreements with ModernaTX, Inc., a biotechnology company pioneering messenger RNA (mRNA) therapeutics and vaccines, to support two innovative research projects in the area of lipid nanoparticles (LNPs). LNPs are critical components in mRNA medicines such as vaccines, as they are the primary delivery method of mRNA strands to the target cells.
If you believe a medical treatment was developed specifically for you, it may be more effective, especially if you want to be seen as unique, according to new research from McGill University.
Scientists have long been captivated by the possibility of discovering evidence for extraterrestrial life in the universe. While many of the world’s largest telescopes are pointed toward distant galaxies and star systems, however, some think there’s a strong possibility that life could be detected much closer to home.
Biological invasions are a major threat to ecosystems, biodiversity, and human well-being, resulting in ecosystem degradation and causing economic costs in the multi-trillions of euros globally.
