Congratulations Xiao Peng! The 2020 Ross Hallett Memorial Scholarship in Biophysics Winner

Peng Xiao obtained his BSc in Physics from Beijing University, and his MSc in Condensed Matter Physics from Brock University. He began his PhD in Biophysics at the University of Guelph in 2016, determining, at the atomic level, how membrane proteins fold into their functional states. This subject is both of fundamental importance and of medical relevance, as membrane protein misfolding is associated with many debilitating disorders.

Congratulations to the Dutcher Lab on their Gryphon's LAAIR award!

Vanishing Act - From UofG Discovery to Commercial Product

The Dutcher Lab is working with its industrial partner Veriphy Skincare to commercialize a revolutionary cosmetic face mask that quickly dissolves into the skin, simplifying the use of the face mask and eliminating the waste associated with currently-available masks that must be peeled from the face and thrown away. This product capitalizes on the excellent film-forming ability of PhytoSpherix particles discovered in the Dutcher Laboratory at the University of Guelph.
