Microscopic silver particles, also known as nanosilver, is used as an antimicrobial agent in a vast array of consumer products - everything from clothing and condoms. A study conducted by a research team that includes Trent University’s Dr. Chris Metcalfe exploring this tiny material’s impact on freshwater ecosystems and fish is making big headlines on the front page of the @globeandmail . . . . . . . . . . #TrentU #TrentUniversity #TrentUResearch #FreshwaterEcosystems #FishResearch #Water #nanosilver #nanosilverresearch #GlobeandMail #UniversitiesCanada

Tyra Lewis has good reason to celebrate. Her research on the role of quercetin as an antioxidant has been recognized internationally. This past July, the recent #ForensicScience graduate who is now pursuing her Master of Science in Environmental and Life Sciences (ENLS), participated via Twitter in the Global Inorganic Discussion Weekdays (GIDW) Virtual Poster Competition, held by the Chemical Institute of Canada and learned she was the distinguished recipient of one of the poster prizes to be awarded by the Canadian Society of Chemistry. Ms. Lewis’s poster, entitled “How Do Metal Ions Affect the Ability of a Flavonoid to Quench the Superoxide Anion Radical,” is based on research completed during her fourth-year undergrad thesis course, supervised by Dr. Sanela Martic, assistant professor, Forensic Science. The research, which has not been previously extensively explored or understood, could yield new insight into new therapeutic approaches for these diseases. Ms. Lewis credits Professor Martic and her lab (the Martic Lab) with helping her to build credibility and confidence as a researcher and present her work on the international stage. Since joining The Martic Lab in 2019, Ms. Lewis has had the opportunity to attend four virtual and three in-person conferences, present posters, co-publish a peer-reviewed paper and win two prizes. The other prize was the 2020 International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) Belgrade Online Poster Prize, which was partially sponsored by Wiley and Elsevier – two prestigious publishers of scientific and medical content. Undergraduate research opportunities like these are very valuable to Trent students. “In addition to opportunities to attend and present at conferences, they help students discover what they are interested in, establish a reference for future job and studies applications, and expand their hard and soft skills,” says Prof. Martic. At the Martic Lab specifically, students like Tyra have research opportunities at multiple levels, such as research lab volunteers, the undergraduate thesis course, placement courses and paid summer research assistantships.
