UBC researchers are leading the world towards a brighter future. To celebrate UBC’s Centennial year, we are holding a series of programs that will bring the best of UBC research to communities across the country. Each program in the Centennial Speaker Series will feature key UBC researchers in areas as diverse as sports concussions, water governance, and epigenetics; presenting highlights from their work before engaging in a brief discussion about the important role their research plays in modern society.
