We were honoured to have Premier Christy Clark visit our laboratory, and make the formal announcement of a $3.5 million grant to support the MITACS program. We are particularly pleased that the Premier and MITACS chose to highlight the work of one of our graduate trainees, Aaron Phillips (PhD Candidate, Faculty of Medicine), and our ongoing research collaborations with Brad Zdanivsky (the inventor of openPAW) and SOC Robotics Inc.

Further information regarding this announcement and pictures showing the Premier, Pat Bell (Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation), Dr. Stephen Toope (President, the University of British Columbia), our graduate trainees, and various other dignitaries can be found on various websites:
