Daniel Bernstein

Bob Dylan was right when he wrote the times they are a changing. But how we experience those times also changes during our lifetimes, according to Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) psychology instructor, Dr. Daniel Bernstein. It’s known as social cognition—how we think in social situations—and Bernstein shares its secrets at the next installment of the KPU Science World Speaker series with a talk aptly titled, I Knew It And So Did You!

Starting Friday, you can interact with the Science World Dome on Friday and Saturday nights throughout August.

Till and McCulloch

Drs James Till and Ernest McCulloch were two Canadian scientists who pioneered the field of stem cell research with the discovery of a method to detect cells able to restore blood production in transplanted irradiated mice. This finding prompted the later identification of cells able to regenerate other tissues, including skin, muscle and brain. This has led to advances in research and treatment of cancer.
