Dr. Brian MacVicar

Dear DMCBH Members,

To capitalize on the latest developments in immunology and neuroscience, Dr. Brian MacVicar and Prof. Marc Horowitz are leading an interdisciplinary effort to find opportunities for collaboration across these different research areas at UBC. 

To start, we are holding an initial Neuro-Immuno (Immuno-Neuro) Summit. Groups interested in participating in a neuroscience-immunology initiative are asked to present a very short talk (less than 5 mins, 2 slides max) to introduce their lab interests and technology.

  • 3:00-4:00 pm   Informal talks
  • 4:00-5:00 pm   Refreshments

Please RSVP to Swarni Sunner for your group.

We are looking forward to a productive meeting and the start of a strong partnership.
