SPEAKERS

The Futuristic World of Traffic and Transportation Systems
Yeatland Wong, City of Calgary

Yeatland Wong, City of Calgary

Yeatland Wong, City of Calgary

When you’re driving to work in the morning, do you secretly believe there is an evil psychopath watching you via cameras, and turning lights red, just as you arrive at a traffic signal?  Or have you ever wondered if  you can really trigger a green light emergency pre-emption by flashing your high beams? Yeatland Wong explores the work and technology behind a major traffic control network, the latest innovations in transportation system technology, and implications of a future world where cars can drive themselves.

Ivermectin: A parasite’s worst nightmare
Dr. John Gilleard, Associate Dean, Research, Professor (Parasitology), University of Calgary
Executive Committee Member, NSERC CREATE  Host-Parasite Interactions (HPI)

Dr. John Gilleard, University of Calgary

Dr. John Gilleard, University of Calgary

It’s referred to as a wonder drug, with an impact as big as penicillin and aspirin. Ivermectin is a 2015 Nobel Prize winning discovery that’s got parasites wriggling away. Unearthed on a golf course by scientists in Japan, this drug’s success story impacts multiple continents and connects people in sub-Saharan Africa to cattle in Alberta to Bill and Melinda Gates. Join the parasite professor, Dr. John Gilleard, as he explains how a little-known drug is making a world of difference.

I bought my research lab at Walmart: The rapidly changing face of wearable technology
Dr. Reed Ferber, Associate Professor, University of Calgary, Director: Running Injury Clinic

Dr. Reed Ferber

Dr. Reed Ferber, University of Calgary

Rapid advances in technology now allow researchers to utilize incredibly sophisticated (and relatively inexpensive) scientific tools that can be purchased at your corner store.  This new tech also allows researchers the opportunity to get their research out of their laboratories and translate it directly into the real world.  After all, runners don’t get injured in my research lab!  This talk will discuss these rapid advancements in technology and the future of analysing how a person walks or runs to determine the root cause of an injury and predict injuries before they happen – but “Big Brother” will have to watch you to a certain degree!
