CBR Research Day


Join us at our first virtual CBR Research Day on Thursday, August 13, 2020!

CBR Research Day takes place annually to celebrate the end of the CBR-SBME Summer Studentship Program, where undergraduate students undertake a summer project in a clinic or a lab under the supervision of one of the CBR & SBME PIs or postdoctoral fellows. All program participants are required to present their summer work with a PowerPoint presentation. This day is an amazing training opportunity for undergraduate students involved in CBR & SBME research to practice their presentation skills and to learn about the work being done in CBR & SBME labs. All are welcome!

You can support the future of the CBR Research Day and ongoing CBR-SBME Summer Studentship Program by donating here.


Note: The event will be recorded and archived for future viewing. If you have any questions, please contact mira.milutinovic@ubc.ca.

If you are a student in the CBR-SBME Summer Studentship Program that requires your participation in this event, you will be presenting a 2.5 minute talk on your summer research.

All other summer students are welcome to participate in the oral presentation. Please inform Stefanie (stefanie.mak@ubc.ca) if you plan to do so.
