The Centre for Biomedical Research (CBR) is a collaborative group of scientists and clinicians who are investigating a number of important biomedical problems. 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.

DESCRIPTION: A spoken word and visual tour across cutting edge biomedical research at the University of Victoria.
Biomedical research is the pursuit of answers to questions with medical applications. These investigations lead to discoveries, which in turn lead to the development of new preventions, therapies and cures. Join us for a fast-paced Pecha Kucha-style event highlighting biomedical research of UVic graduate students. After the presentations visit with UVic’s newest researchers to discuss scientific posters, while having refreshments and snacks .
