    The path to new knowledge is as varied and complex as the human mind. The University of Lethbridge is committed to understanding the interactions between disciplines, discovering new solutions to perplexing problems and enabling positive change. 

    We seek to understand the human and natural world and the universe beyond, with an aim to bring knowledge and wisdom to bear on sustaining and improving quality of life, society and the environment. Our superior teaching is informed by our superior research, and our undergraduate and graduate students play an active role in the investigative and creative process. We are committed to preparing the next generation of highly qualified researchers and practitioners who will lead the way in a knowledge-driven future. 

    Your support enables our faculty and students to bring new light to problems and possibilities, empowering a new generation of leaders to build a better world.

    Is Canada is on the verge of a brain health crisis? uLethbridge neuroscience researcher Dr. Majid Mohajerani, pictured above, is one of the trailblazers working to identify the mechanisms at work in Alzheimer’s disease with an aim to advance effective treatments. He and fellow uLethbridge faculty member Dr. Bruce McNaughton are investigating brain neurobiology related to Alzheimer’s disease, thanks to two Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) grants worth nearly $2 million over five years.

    “The Alzheimer’s crisis is bearing down on us like a tsunami and this is something we need to take seriously. By improving brain health, we not only help Canada continue to progress into the 21st century, but help the population be healthier and happier.” - Dr. Majid Mohajerani | Faculty, Department of Neuroscience and the Canadian Centre for Behavioral Neuroscience (CCBN)
