Research Matters: Lakehead University’s New Talk Show
Check out Lakehead's new talk show that connects the public with university researchers.
Lakehead University is partnering with Shaw Spotlight on a new Community Link television program that will connect the public with university researchers.
Research Matters, a monthly 30-minute talk show, will be hosted by Lakehead's Dr. Andrew P. Dean, Vice-President of Research and Innovation, and have university researchers share their journeys and research outcomes with the public.
"Community-engaged research is an important priority for Lakehead University," said Dr. Dean. "Our faculty and student researchers are often the ones behind the scenes innovating and discovering and making meaningful contributions towards our communities and regions. This series will allow us to raise their profile within the community and publicly share their research's impact beyond the University's walls. We are grateful to Shaw for its support of this programming."
The program will feature interviews with Lakehead researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines — from natural sciences, engineering, and health to social sciences and humanities. Through conversation, the show will examine the context of research, explore community connections and industry partners, and delve into the relevance and potential impact on society from a regional, national, and international perspective.
