Dr. Teresa Tsang stepping down as Associate Head, Research, UBC Department of Medicine

Dear Colleagues, 

It is with mixed emotions that I announce Dr. Teresa Tsang is stepping down from her position as Associate Head, Research in the Department of Medicine to accept the position of Associate Dean, Research, VCHRI and Executive Director, VCHRI

Dr. Tsang has been a tremendous Associate Head, Research. While I am sad to see her leave this role, I am excited for her new opportunities at VCHRI.

My time working with Dr. Tsang was filled with growth and collaboration. I am immensely grateful for the milestones and research advancements Dr. Tsang contributed to and the positive impact she had on the research activities within the Department of Medicine.

We will be posting the Associate Head, Research position shortly and Dr. Tsang has generously committed to ensuring a seamless transition and will stay on as Associate Head, Research until a new Associate Head, Research is appointed.

Please join me in thanking Dr. Tsang for her contributions and wishing her the best in her new appointment at VCHRI.
