Silicon Hall Update:

“The everyday work life of most other teams is based on rules, procedures and instructions. Ours is based on trust, cooperation and support. Thanks for being such a wonderful team.”

Silicon Hall moves to a new home in Ontario soon and I would like to thank all Silicon Hall members at UNB, you guys have proved that a project’s success is a joint effort by a good team and not just a good leader. Thanks, each and every one of you for your hard work.

Congratulations to Amin!


Amin has successfully defended his honours thesis titled: ” Mammalian Fibroblasts Respond to Laser Treated Silicon ”

Congratulations from Silicon Hall team and best of luck in all Amin’s future endeavors!
