 UBC Department of Medicine Research Expo

The annual UBC Department of Medicine Research Expo was founded in 2011 and is a collaboration between the Department of Medicine Research Office and the UBC Experimental Medicine Program.

The UBC Department of Medicine Research Expo features keynote speakers from the Department of Medicine who are the driving forces behind topical issues garnering considerable public attention. Each year, we invite an external faculty member to share with us their research work, and insights that have a significant impact on our lives. 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.
