Last night’s Launch Party for Research2Reality was the perfect way to celebrate the extraordinary amount of work that has gone into this initiative. It was so exciting to have 28 of our featured investigators from across the country attend and talk to us about their research. Our Waterloo researchers even organized into a carpool convoy: Rockstar road trip!
Ivan Semeniuk from the Globe and Mail was everything we could have asked for in a host – he was funny, charming and asked our Research Rockstars some insightful questions that produced thoughtful and thought-provoking answers.
The positive response to the science shorts was overwhelming. It was especially touching to hear the cheers from the crowd whenever one of the investigators was highlighted.
We ended the night inspired by the incredible talent of our scientists, the generosity of our partners, and the response from the public. Thank you for helping make our vision a reality.
