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.

University of Victoria
Biomedical engineering and related disciplines at the University of Victoria generate strong connections between university research and local business. We are the home of the first accredited undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering in Western Canada and this event is designed to showcase our innovative research and industry partnerships in biomedical research occurring in Victoria and the lower mainland. Our first ever Biomedical Technology- Industry Partnership day is open the community, including students, faculty, local industry, and other interested parties.
Join us for industry talks, a panel discussion, a showcase of BME projects, and a speed-networking session that will create new connections and spark collaborative project ideas with funding options available between researchers and industry.
Registration opens mid-June.
