Past Events



SBME at UBC hosted more than 300 members from academia, industry and hospital partners on June 11, 2019. It was an incredible success building on the our launch Symposium in 2018. We can't wait for 2020's symposium!

SBME at UBC had a great showing at the BMES annual meeting Oct 18-20th. We loved being in the Canadian section in the exhibition hall with McGill, UofT and UofC. The first (hopefully annual) pan-Canadian reception was fun too!







The School of Biomedical Engineering will be joining the Canadian Graduate Engineering Consortium ( on a cross-Canada fall tour this year. Watch for SBME representatives at the Fair in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta in the next week from September 24 - October 2, 2018.

Genesis: The launch symposium of the School of Biomedical Engineering


On May 31, 2018, more than 300 people attended a daytime symposium and evening reception at UBC to celebrate the official launch of the School of Biomedical Engineering – a partnership between the faculties of medicine and applied science. The celebration boosted our momentum toward BME@UBC’s vision – to build health from biology. UBC’s success in biomedical engineering over the past four decades gives BME@UBC tremendous opportunity for national and international leadership moving forward. Our valued partnerships and collaborations will strengthen a nucleus of excellence in education, research and innovation at the convergence of biology and technology, applied to solve real-world health challenges.
