LOLLL
Jeremy Kerr - Chair of Department
37:35
WE HATE THOSE KINDS OF MESSAGES
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
38:02
😂
Jeremy Kerr - Chair of Department
38:08
As Dr. Harris says, help us appreciate your request by showing us you care enough to make it real.
Tuan Bui
39:36
The reality is that we may receive a lot of emails from students looking to do an honours project. Please find a way to stick out by describing your interest and expertise and how they may align with the research interests of the potential supervisor
Adele
40:33
Can a supervisor be in other science departments (for example chemistry or biochemistry?)
Audrey Turcotte
41:22
Yes!
Nathalie Marks de Chabris
41:30
Can a BIM student do the BIO4009 course and honours project?
Nathalie Marks de Chabris
41:54
Or does it have to be the BIM4009?
Tuan Bui
42:16
I believe it has to be BIM4009 as it is part of the course requirements of the BIM programs
Tuan Bui
43:05
Though BIO and BIM4009 are very similar
Jeremy Kerr - Chair of Department
43:36
Adele: Remember just that the project needs to be a biology project for it to be BIO or BIM 4009. There is a fair bit of bio stuff in chemistry (because we rock), and there *might* be ways to do this. Would have to be careful of administrative guardrails, though.
jacques frémont
44:36
I do <3
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
44:42
Do the BIM4009 (and BIM4920/4921) course credits count as "course units offered by the Faculty of Science"?
Audrey Turcotte
45:49
Do the BIM4009 (and BIM4920/4921) course credits count as "course units offered by the Faculty of Science"?: I am not sure about that if someone knows
Jeremy Kerr - Chair of Department
45:56
It’s true. Undeniably. We are the best.
Leslie (she/her)
46:00
If we are not taking any options can we do the Honours projet to fulfil the optional courses requirements?
jacques frémont
46:38
Hell yeah we're the best 😍💅😈
Andrew Calderon
46:43
Will I still be able to take a few courses while undertaking a project?
Jeremy Kerr - Chair of Department
47:21
Andrew: yes. Just be aware that the 9 credit honours course (BI* 4009) is a major activity.
Audrey Turcotte
48:06
If we are not taking any options can we do the Honours projet to fulfil the optional courses requirements?: Someone is able to answer this one?
Tuan Bui
48:51
Leslie, I believe that one of the requirements of the BIO or BIM4009 courses is to be enrolled in an Honours program
Megan Worth
49:22
Is there a list of supervisors and the research they do that we can find for the department of biology? Or is it just the cafe and the Ottawa website?
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
49:30
I believe she meant if you're in honours but not taking an option
Leslie (she/her)
49:42
I am, but I do not take any option like neurosciences etc, so am I still eligible?
Tuan Bui
49:46
Layan, yes, if you are in the Honours BSc in Biology (without any option), you can still do the BIO4009 course
Tuan Bui
49:58
Same for BIM. An option is not required
Leslie (she/her)
50:02
Okay thanks
Abby Simms
50:04
When would supervisors start considering honours students for the next coming fall semester?
Audrey Turcotte
50:16
When would supervisors start considering honours students for the next coming fall semester?: Now
Nathalie Marks de Chabris
51:46
If I do an honours project in biology, does it count as the BIM4009 course? Or do I have to do specifically biomedical research?
jacques frémont
52:13
what if i just want a snack 🤔
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
52:17
So would the credits for this project count as "optional course units offered by the Faculty of Science"? This is one of the requirements in 4th year bim, basically science electives
Jeremy Kerr - Chair of Department
52:28
This is why nachos and Bio 4004 exist.
jacques frémont
52:50
good idea dr. kerr 😋
jacques frémont
52:54
OMG TANGO !!!
Tuan Bui
52:54
Layan, no the credits for BIO or BIM4009 are separate from the optional course units
Kalena Greenfield
52:59
TANGO!!
Audrey Turcotte
53:11
If I do an honours project in biology, does it count as the BIM4009 course? Or do I have to do specifically biomedical research?: As the TA, I saw many BIM students doing more "BIO" project.
Megan Worth
53:15
Tangooo!!!
jacques frémont
53:24
YESSS TANGOOOOOOO
Andrew Calderon
53:35
tanGoat
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
53:47
Oh, I was told before that they would count because in 4th year, I am supposed to take 9 optional course units at the 3000 or 4000-level offered by the Faculty of science
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
54:06
So if this project doesn't count, that means that it can't be done in the honours bim degree
Tuan Bui
54:23
Let me double check on that, Layan
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
54:28
Thank you!
Andrew Vigars
54:48
does the lab safety training need to be re-done if I have already completed it for a lab I'm currently volunteering in?
Carson Norkum
55:13
I'm going to go to an academic advisor with that exact question too Layan
Jeremy Kerr - Chair of Department
55:25
Layan: lots of bim projects in “regular” biology, no problem .
Andrew Vigars
55:43
And biology is the best I agree
Audrey Turcotte
55:44
If I do an honours project in biology, does it count as the BIM4009 course? Or do I have to do specifically biomedical research?: I think that you do not need to.
Nathalie Marks de Chabris
56:06
Thanks!
Audrey Turcotte
56:16
oups sorry my answer was to this question: does the lab safety training need to be re-done if I have already completed it for a lab I'm currently volunteering in?
Andrew Vigars
56:29
okay thank you
Audrey Turcotte
57:26
but, same answer for Nathalie, I saw many BIM students, with more "BIO" project.
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
57:39
@Jeremy Kerr: I love your bird!
Tuan Bui
57:56
Layan: I was mistaken about whether the BIM4009 is required. It depends on the program you are in. If you are in the BIM honours BSc program, it seems that it can count as the 9 credits optional course in the Faculty of Science
Nathalie Marks de Chabris
58:03
Ok thank you Audrey!
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
58:38
@Tuan Bui: Thank you for your response! Do you recommend I also ask an academic advisor to double-check?
Tuan Bui
58:55
It never hurts to get confirmation from an academic advisor!
Ariana Kokkinakis
59:05
I checked with an academic advisor about this earlier this year Layan and they said it counts as science electives
Layan Rasoul (she/her/elle)
59:25
@Ariana: Great! Thank you for letting me know
Ariana Kokkinakis
59:43
No worries!
Rebecca Schnellhardt
59:49
For whoever asked about a list of profs and research, https://uniweb.uottawa.ca/ is a good site I think
Megan Worth
59:59
Thanks!
Nathalie Marks de Chabris
01:00:22
When do forms need to be handed in to apply for doing an honours project? Is there any special registration to be done?
Cory Harris
01:00:29
https://science.uottawa.ca/biology/research-publications/research-projects
Najla Elsayed
01:00:45
Where can you find the registration form?
Cory Harris

Kalena Greenfield
01:01:52
What is the best way to balance our other classes and the honours project? How many courses should we take along with our research?
Audrey Turcotte
01:01:58
Question here: When do forms need to be handed in to apply for doing an honours project? Is there any special registration to be done?
Carson Norkum
01:02:54
Is there a strict due date for this form?
Nathalie Marks de Chabris
01:02:57
Would we have to do that when course selection for the fall 2022 semester opens?
John Bengtsson
01:03:51
Is the honours course only something that runs fall-winter or can it go winter-summer?
jacques frémont
01:03:55
early bird gets the worm
Andrew Vigars
01:04:02
If we end up needing a co-supervisor for BIO 4009, is the co-supervisor independent of the lab that is associated with the main lab and supervisor?
Cory Harris
01:06:00
The co-supervisor can be independent or affiliated
