FoM Panel— Translating discovery to transform health: Untold stories from medical research

The UBC Faculty of Medicine presents:

Translating discovery to transform health: Untold stories from medical research

The rapid pace of development for COVID-19 treatments and vaccines has demonstrated both the need and opportunity to expedite discoveries from the lab to the clinic—where innovation can save and improve lives.

British Columbia is home to a thriving life sciences ecosystem that made pivotal contributions to the COVID-19 response. The biotech sector in B.C. is poised to drive both the economy and healthcare of the future—yet individually, scientists, companies and clinicians still face seemingly insurmountable barriers to collaboration and innovation. Can you imagine a smoother path?

Hear from UBC experts Dr. Pieter Cullis, Dr. Megan Levings and Dr. Sriram Subramaniam as they share insights from their own experiences bringing discoveries into the healthcare system, and perspectives on how to integrate academic research and the biotech industry in B.C. to accelerate health innovation.
