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.

From physics to physiology and prosthetics:
a personal odyssey.
Richard B. Stein
Department of Physiology, University of Alberta
Thursday 10 April 2014
12:00 – 1:00 pm
Room MSB 160
This talk will describe a scientific path I have taken from information theory to neural models to sensory receptors, to human motor units, to new types of electrodes, to below-elbow prostheses, to above-knee prostheses, to reflexes, to closed loop control of locomotion, to foot-drop stimulators and devices to prevent pressure ulcers. How this odyssey occurred may be instructive to people beginning their scientific career and hopefully of interest to those who have followed different, but equally fascinating paths.
