Earl W. Davie Symposium

Earl Davie photoThis annual 1-day symposium, in honour of Dr. Earl W. Davie, features presentations by local experts in vascular biology, hemostasis-thrombosis, cardiovascular and neurologic disease.

Dr. Earl Davie’s research has elucidated many areas of coagulation and led to effective treatments for patients with a range of bleeding disorders. He and his colleagues devised the revolutionary Waterfall Sequence for Blood Clotting. Dr. Davie applied cutting edge technologies to identify and characterize the coagulation proteins in detail throughout the 1960s and ’70s, and subsequently isolated, sequenced, and expressed the genes for these clotting factors. For his many critical achievements, Dr. Davie has been widely acclaimed and has received numerous international awards. He is a member of the US National Academy of Science and is a Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Recap

November 14, 2013 marked the 7th Annual Earl W. Davie Symposium, hosted by the CBR and sponsored by Novo Nordisk. It was a memorable event, hosted in the historic old Bank of Montreal building in downtown Vancouver, with over 180 attendees, a range of entertaining and stimulating speakers, excellent posters, delicious food and fine wine.

Arguably, one of the major discoveries in medicine in the latter half of the 20th century was made by Dr. Earl Davie who, in 1964, proposed the waterfall sequence for blood clotting. Although our understanding of the biochemical events surrounding coagulation has evolved since then, the major concepts have been and continue to be the basis for currently used diagnostic tests and therapies, in coagulation and in other diseases. The impact of Dr. Davie’s work is indeed, immeasurable, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to honour him each year with this annual symposium that carries his name. Read More…
