Community University Research Exchange (CURE)

CURE is an initiative with that aims to connect researchers at the University of Lethbridge with community members interested in research endeavours.  CURE helps ensure that the world-class research that is conducted at the University of Lethbridge has an opportunity to be utilized by community organizations, government bodies, non-governmental organizations, industry and the general public.  The University of Lethbridge is committed to using new knowledge and discoveries to improve the life of Canadians and advance our scientific footprint.

On March 20, 2015, the University of Lethbridge will host the third annual CURE event.  Faculty members and students are encouraged to attend to describe projects involving external partners and to learn about others who involve the external community in their research.  Community members interested in participating as partners in research or learning about what types of research are ongoing at the university are encouraged to attend.  We hope to connect University researchers with community partners as a result of this initiative.
