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.
