Accident Reconstruction
Specialist use complex formulas and advanced mathematics to find out the series of events leading up to, during, and after a traffic accident. Their opinions and findings are used as influential evidence in court.
Chemotherapy Drug Combinations
The Cross Cancer Institute (Edmonton, AB) wanted to optimize chemotherapy treatments to help block cancerous proteins from proliferating throughout a patient’s system.
