Aaron Wheeler Receives 2015 NSERC Steacie Fellowship
Aaron Wheeler who is the recipient of an NSERC Steacie Fellowship awarded annually to enhance the career development of outstanding and highly promising scientists and engineers who are faculty members of Canadian universities. Three of six Steacie Fellowships were awarded to UoT researchers. Aaron’s research is developing better ways to test newborns for serious yet treatable genetic diseases. The current mode of testing – a blood draw that is then processed in a lab – is manual and slow. Wheeler is using digital microfluidic technology to develop an automated process. He is also working on extending his techniques beyond genetic disorders to screen mothers and babies for infectious diseases like rubella and inborn disorders like fetal alcohol syndrome.
Christine Le Named to Forbes' Top 30 Under 30 Science List
Christine Le (Lautens' group) has been named to the Forbes’ Top 30 Under 30 Science list. She’s been cited as a rising star by Forbes for her research on designing more efficient and environmentally-friendly methods to create molecules that are mainly used by pharmaceutical drug and chemical manufacturing industries.

Heavy atom substitution is a promising strategy for the development of high performance materials for organic electronic applications. In particular, the use of tellurium in place of selenium or sulfur in conjugated polymers lends new properties to these materials such as red-shifted optical absorption, high polarizability, high dielectric constant, and strong intermolecular interactions. These properties are favorable for polymer electronics. The use of polymers containing tellurophene, the tellurium analogue of the well-studied thiophene, has only recently begun to emerge in the literature. In this Perspective we discuss the current status of tellurium-containing polymers in terms of their...
