In optoacoustic imaging, short pulses of light are sent into tissue. Because the pulses are so short, the light is converted into sound by the tissue, rather than heat. Dr. Michelle Patterson and Dr. William Whelan&rsquo;s research confirms that cancerous tissue emits sound at a different frequency than non-cancerous tissue.<p><a href="http://news.upei.ca/media/2014/08/19/sound-cancer-upei-researchers-confirm-cancerous-tissues-can-be-detected-their-uniqu" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Research Tue, 19 Aug 2014 11:54:48 +0000 Admin 18609 at http://news.upei.ca Kent Stetson’s Master Class Writing Workshop http://news.upei.ca/media/2014/08/18/kent-stetson-s-master-class-writing-workshop-august-22-24 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-tweet"> <div class="field-label">Tweet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Kent Stetson’s Master Class Writing Workshop </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://news.upei.ca/files/news/imagecache/media-releases-page/media-release/18607/kstetson.jpg" alt="" title="Photo from masterplayworks.com" class="imagecache imagecache-media-releases-page imagecache-default imagecache-media-releases-page_default" width="245" height="151" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Kent Stetson, distinguished native Islander, Governor General&rsquo;s Award laureate, member of the Order of Canada, and recent recipient of the UPEI Alumni Association&rsquo;s Distinguished Alumni Award, will offer a two-tiered, sixteen-hour workshop at UPEI for writers of drama and prose fiction at various stages of their practice.</p><p><a href="http://news.upei.ca/media/2014/08/18/kent-stetson-s-master-class-writing-workshop-august-22-24" target="_blank">read more</a></p> University Mon, 18 Aug 2014 17:15:39 +0000 skerry 18607 at http://news.upei.ca UPEI announces 2014 Mulligan Cup and introduces new Soccer Festival http://news.upei.ca/media/2014/08/08/upei-announces-2014-mulligan-cup-and-introduces-new-soccer-festival <div class="field field-type-text field-field-tweet"> <div class="field-label">Tweet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> UPEI announces 2014 Mulligan Cup and introduces new Soccer Festival </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://news.upei.ca/files/news/imagecache/media-releases-page/media-release/18602/upeisoccer.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-media-releases-page imagecache-default imagecache-media-releases-page_default" width="245" height="151" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>UPEI Soccer is excited to announce the 2014 Mulligan Cup schedule, and introduce the inaugural Mulligan Cup Soccer Festival.
