    Congratulations to Dr. Richard Oleschuk whose research was featured in the Queen's Alumni Review!

    A drop of water sits on a superhydrophobic surface.This photo by Timothy Hutama, a master’s student in the Oleschuk lab in the Department of Chemistry, received honourable mention in the Queen’s 2016 Art of Research photo contest.Dr. Oleschuk's curiosity about water rolling off a Colocasia plant inspired further investigation, which led to the development of laser-patterned microfluidic chips. These microfluidic chips have different wetting properties that could be used to perform on-the-spot diagnostic tests for plant viruses and bacteria, water quality, or infections and other diseases in humans.

Chernoff Hall’s Ventilation Upgrade

Chernoff Hall is upgrading the ventilation system and this project is the single largest Climate Action Project on campus – in the history of Queen’s! For more information on the ventilation upgrade read here. For more information regarding the ventilation shutdown, please refer to the Shutdown Notice.

Science Stores, NMR, X-ray, and MassSpec labs will all be closed during the shutdown.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
