Look what just popped up on Canadian Architect’s news feed:

Stephen Fai of Carleton University’s School of Architecture using digital media to speed treatment for degenerative diseases

Imagine quickly pulling together the scientific results of top researchers from around the world who are trying to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a visual diagram of interdisciplinary results – a snapshot of the latest research that can be easily shared among physicians, biochemists and neuroscientists.

Carleton Architecture Professor Stephen Fai is doing just that.

“It’s a universal language that everyone can understand,” says Fai. “This is the first time an interdisciplinary team has called upon the skills of architects to act as their go-between.”
