Dawn Kilkenny looks out the window of teaching lab in mining building

Early Career Teaching Award spotlight: Q&A with physiologist Dawn Kilkenny

Her students wouldn’t suspect it, but Dawn Kilkenny feels a little stage fright at the start of every academic year.

The reason?

“I want them to like the content as much as I do,” she told U of T News.

Kilkenny, an assistant professor, teaching stream at the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, started at U of T in 2008. In recent years, her main project at the university has been to revamp a biomedical teaching laboratory in the Lassonde Mining Building. She helped raise more than $2 million for new equipment and renovations.

U of T marks International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

Members of the University of Toronto community shared painful stories of racism and discrimination – including at residential schools and during the ’60s Scoop – at a conference marking the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (IDERD).

And they talked about how they are working toward more representation, and getting issues recognized and addressed.

Coffee shops, 24-hour ATMs are the best locations for life-saving AEDs, U of T research shows

ATMs and coffee shops such as Tim Hortons, Starbucks and Second Cup make ideal locations for placing automated external defibrillators (AEDs), says a new study led by U of T Engineering Professor Timothy Chan and PhD candidate Christopher Sun, in collaboration with St. Michael’s Hospital.

When a patient suffers cardiac arrest, every second counts — the chances of survival decrease by 10 per cent each minute. Responding quickly can be the difference between life and death, and that means having immediate access to a nearby AED.
