The UBC Department of Medicine invites its faculty members, students, and staff to the upcoming 2017 Medicine Research Expo, brought to you by our Department of Medicine Research Office and UBC Experimental Medicine Program.

Our keynote speakers this year are the 2017 Department of Medicine Distinguished Achievement Awardees: Dr. Kevin Eva, Dr. Kate Shannon, and Dr. Liam Brunham. Our invited distinguished faculty this year includes department members who are the driving forces behind topical issues garnering considerable public attention: addiction, air quality, stroke prevention and treatment, unconscious bias… to name a few. You will also hear about the latest developments in the UBC Experimental Medicine Program, and have an opportunity to see the outstanding research work of our trainees.

Each year, we invite an external faculty member to share with us his/her research work, and insights that have significant impact on our lives. We are very excited to have Dr. Shimi Kang from the Department of Psychiatry join us this year to talk to us about balance and optimal performance.

We also cordially invite you to showcase your research at this year’s Expo, please contact Anna Meredith at anna.meredith@ubc.ca to make the arrangements for oral or poster presentations. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
