Explore the power of research

Read stories of groundbreaking discovery taking place in all disciplines at the University of Calgary. 

Is our food turning against us?

More than a biological necessity, food is meant to nourish, sustain and unite us. Yet poor diet has become the leading risk of death in Canada. Our researchers study how our food affects our bodies, our health, and even our minds — because while we all know that we are what we eat, we don't yet know why.

Answering the big questions

From laboratory bench to hospital bedside, from cultural evolution to digital revolution, we're translating discovery into meaningful, measurable change.

Explore UCalgary is our way of showing you how we're challenging conventions, solving the unsolvable and doing our best to make the world a better place. For you, for us, for our communities and for everyone around the globe.

So dive in and immerse yourself in our stories of research, of breakthroughs, of discovery and of innovation, across broad themes and in specific topics, in all faculties and disciplines.
