Research in the community

Curious about what we’re working on at Cape Breton University? Join us at one of our Explorations. Community members, researchers and local business owners are invited to check out one of these semi-annual events, which feature presentations by our researchers.

There is an abundance of fascinating research happening at CBU, and we want to share our discoveries with you. Past presentations have looked at using wild plants to promote food security in Nigeria and how everyday contaminants like pharmaceuticals and personal care products affect our water supply.

Check out upcoming CBU Explorations here.
