Dr. Emily Seo is the director of the Shared Instrument Facility in the Department of Chemistry at the University of British Columbia.
A new UBC Sauder School of Business study shows that teenagers who work at summer or evening jobs gain a competitive advantage later in life. Developing early knowledge of the working world and how to manage in it, they are more likely to find good employment and earn more money in the future.
A new biosensor invented at the University of British Columbia could help optimize bio-refining processes that produce fuels, fine chemicals and advanced materials by sniffing out naturally occurring bacterial networks that are genetically wired to break down wood polymer.
People who claimed to have experienced ostracism were significantly more likely to report a degraded sense of workplace belonging and commitment, a stronger intention to quit their job, and a larger proportion of health problems.
A team of clean energy researchers at the University of British Columbia has received a $500,000 grant to commercialize a new technology that converts excess carbon dioxide and wastewater from the oil and gas sector into reusable water and valuable chemicals. This development could serve the dual purpose of reducing global carbon dioxide emissions and addressing the issue of decreasing global water reserves.
As Mother’s Day approaches, a UBC expert discusses ‘baby brain’ and other ways that motherhood changes a woman’s brain chemistry
Researchers are programming robots to communicate with people using human-like body language and cues, an important step toward bringing robots into homes
Researchers have genetically engineered trees that will be easier to break down to produce paper and biofuel, a breakthrough that will mean using fewer chemicals, less energy and creating fewer environmental pollutants.
Canada’s largest integrated brain centre officially opened Feb. 27, uniting research and patient care to change the way brain disorders are treated and studied.
