Can asking questions change the world?

每一天, our scholars tackle global challenges, making important discoveries and creating new knowledge along the way. And it all starts with a question. 

Is your gut the one running the show?

We think of the brain as the body's control centre. But research shows that many of the body's most important functions start with signals from the gut.

Our researchers study how our microbiomes influence the communications between our guts and our brains, affecting everything from our health to our mental states to our relationships. Because while our brains are in charge, the bugs in our bodies have a pretty big say, too.



Answering the big questions

From lab bench to hospital bedside, from cultural evolution to digital revolution, we're translating discovery into meaningful, 可衡量的变化. 

探索UCalgary shows you how we're challenging conventions, solving the unsolvable and doing our best to make the world a better place.
