What was true yesterday may not be true tomorrow. Our researchers seek the truth, wherever it may lead…
Truth is the work of generations. Its pursuit is an arduous and necessary task that requires grit to stick to the evidence even when it seems elusive or challenges older ideas.
The pursuit of truth grounds the work done at the University of Alberta. By asking why, and what, and how, our researchers push the boundaries of knowledge. They create discoveries that improve our lives and the world. They help shape our future.
Following truth’s lead, our researchers have created new knowledge in health and life sciences, energy, artificial intelligence, and so much more. See why truth matters.
