A Biomimetic Scaffold for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Regeneration
Approximately 200,000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-related injuries occur annually in North America, and of these, approximately half involve ACL rupture. The ACL has a low capacity for self-healing, and an ACL compromised knee leads to an increased likelihood of early onset osteoarthritis. For these reasons, approximately 100,000 ACL reconstructions are performed annually. This talk will describe our work on the development of a scaffold that provides microarchitectural similarity to the native ACL and the benefits such a design provides in terms of tissue formation.
Strategies to Control the Glycosylation of a Protein in a Cell Bioprocess
Cellular glycosylation of proteins occurs post-translationally and is affected by a network of competing enzymes in the Golgi of mammalian cells. Unlike the synthesis of proteins or nucleic acids the process is not governed by a pre-formed template. The glycan profile of a glycoprotein depends upon the producer cell line, the growth media, the culture conditions as well as the protein structure. This presentation will review some of the major achievements of the MabNet program that allow bioprocess parameters to be controlled in order to minimize batch to batch variation of antibody glycosylation. Strategies will also be discussed to produce proteins with pre-defined glycan structures.

Call for Nominations for Outstanding High School Teachers
The call for nominations for the "Beaumier High School/Cégep Chemistry Teachers Award" deadline is October 15. The award recognizes excellence in teaching chemistry at the high school or CÉGEP level, and seeks to encourage and promote chemistry at the secondary level in Canada. Consider nominating a teacher today!
Canada's fastest-growing jobs in the next 5 years
Canada's population is growing older, and that means big growth in jobs catering to seniors.
Community care facilities for the elderly will see the largest increase in jobs of any industry in Canada over the next five years, according to an in-house economic analysis from job site CareerBuilder.
Jobs in the industry will increase by 13 per cent between 2015 and 2020, far exceeding the 3 per cent increase in total jobs over that time.
Building a personal brand as an engineer
Most engineers get a bit queasy when I talk to them about branding — especially about branding themselves. "I have a brand already." they tell me, "It's called 'engineer'."
Not so fast, my marketingphobic friend.
Calling yourself a "regular 'ol engineer" is fine and well, but is any employer or client out there really looking for a "regular 'ol engineer". Nope. Not a chance.
Here's where to find a job in Canada right now
If you're in urgent need of a job right now, there's apparently a groundswell of transportation openings throughout Atlantic Canada.
Maritime employers are the most "upbeat" about hiring intentions through the summer and early fall, a new survey suggests, notably in the fields of finance, insurance, real estate, public utilities and transportation.
