The Centre for Biomedical Research (CBR) is a collaborative group of scientists and clinicians investigating problems related to human health and disease. The CBR is a multidisciplinary unit with an emphasis on genetics, molecular biology, and biotechnology. The centre was created to promote interdisciplinary basic and translational biomedical research. There are seven important research clusters within the CBR: biological technology, infection and immunity, cell signaling, genetics, cardiovascular, neuroscience and developmental biology. Our members span several UVic departments, the UVic Division of Medical Sciences, the Vancouver Island Health Authority and the BC Cancer Agency.
The Café Scientifique series is an informal series of talks given in an relaxed setting such as a café. These talks are designed to engage the public in learning about recent research in science. The talks, which are given by experts in the field, provide an opportunity to stimulate discussion around some of the most exciting topics in modern science. Join us for this exciting series of talks in 2016-17!

What is a 3 Minute Thesis Evening?
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland which challenges master’s and doctoral students to present a compelling oration of their thesis and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The challenge is to present complex research material in an engaging, compelling way, using only one static PowerPoint slide.material in an engaging, compelling way, using only one static PowerPoint slide.
