Why Support the CBR?

In spite of major advances at the CBR in the pursuit of health through research in blood and blood-related processes, there is much to be done. Through your contributions, the CBR will speed progress:

  • To optimize the quality of blood transfusions and to reduce the need.
  • To prevent and better treat patients with bleeding or clotting abnormalities.
  • To find cures for inflammatory and infectious diseases, such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, atherosclerosis and HIV-AIDS.
  • To foster the development of future generations of well-educated, skilled scientists and physicians who understand the value of multidisciplinary approaches to improve the health and well-being of individuals throughout the world.

What your investment will do

CBR is dedicated to the two broad goals: to provide an excellent training environment for the junior investigators and to enable world-class translational research in blood and blood-related processes. The CBR relies on your generosity to maintain its training and research excellence. To support CBR, please click here.

In memory of Dr. Neil MacKenzie

Donations will support the CBR Summer Studentship Program, which is one of the largest and most progressive of its kind at UBC. The success of this program relies entirely on the mentorship talents of post-doctoral fellows and/or research assistants who are dedicated to creating a gratifying and successful experience for the summer student, one that stimulates excitement and a quest for more knowledge. Your gift will also go towards the MacKenzie Mentorship Award that recognizes an individual at CBR who, like Neil, demonstrates an outstanding commitment to mentorship and the development of others.
