We are very pleased to announce the following Bachelor of Health Sciences Teaching Award winners for the Fall 2016 nomination competition held in November, 2016!

2017 applications for undergraduate summer studentships as well as other funding opportunities are now available!

Among the seven University of Calgary's talented students and alumni endorsed by this year’s Internal Rhodes Review Committee, two are current BHSc students, Erica Friebe and Elliott Reichardt, and a third is a program graduate, Kaylynn Purdy.

The University of Calgary 2016 iGEM team, led by BHSc instructor Dr. Mayi Arcellana-Panlilio, have won accolades at the iGEM Giant Jamboree held in Boston from Oct 27-31. Competing in a field of 275 teams from all over the world, the U of C team fulfilled the stringent requirements for a gold medal, was nominated for Best Applied Design, and was awarded Best Integrated Human Practices in the closing ceremonies of the competition. 

The iGEM team, comprised of students from the faculties of Medicine, Science and Engineering, undertook the synthetic biology project they dubbed "The Subtilis Defense" and worked over the course of the spring and summer terms in the Bachelor of Health Sciences teaching labs to develop the transdermal delivery of a peptide to protect against DNA damage from ionizing radiation.  The human practices prize recognized how the team's ongoing conversations and consultations with experts in the field, potential end users (astronauts from the Canadian Space Agency and NASA), and policy makers informed the design and execution of their project.

On Oct. 26, Dr. Guido van Marle, Co-Director of Biomedical Sciences and Associate Professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases, was recognized for his outstanding achievement as an undergraduate mentor in the Bachelor of Health Sciences Program.
