Making Writing Easier

Who is this workshop for?  Researchers who are struggling with writing manuscripts, grants, research program descriptions for applications, scholarships or thesis. What is this workshop about?  Researchers tell me that writing is hard. They are overwhelmed by our ideas, unsure where to start, and feel lost at times. Melissa E Anders has been developing and implementing grants with scientists for more than 15 years and she has a deep curiosity and understanding about human nature and how we can harness our true selves. It is at this intersection that she draws from to support researchers in making writing easier. In this [...]

2019 Health and Regenerative Medicine Hackathon

After a very successful first event at UVic last year, we are making our 2nd annual Hackathon even bigger! With a cross-campus Hackathon happening between UVic and UBC! 🧬 What is a Hackathon? 🧬 A ‘traditional’ hackathon is an event where programmers get together for a short period of time to collaborate on a project. Typically, participants have 24-48 hours to consecutively work on the challenge with the goal of delivering a completed product/project at the end of that time period. 🔬 BUT 🔬 This is not your typical Hackathon! FIRST: you do not need a background in coding or computer science [...]

2019 BCRegMed Cascadia Corridor Research Symposium

Tissue Clearing and Expansion

BCREGMED and the Dynamic Brain Circuits in Health & Disease team are excited to offer a full day workshop to facilitate the use of tissue clearing and expansion techniques in the regenerative medicine lab. November 7th 9am-4pm DMCBH Koerner Labs Conference Centre First floor, UBC Hospital Koerner Pavilion 2211 Wesbrook Mall Vancouver, BC Canada V6T 2B5 Purpose Biological specimens are intrinsically difficult to image.  Currently used tools and methods, which cut two-dimensional sections of tissue samples to provide insight into the cellular components, lack in their ability to reveal the systemic nature of tissues and organs which are inherently three-dimensional. On [...]

Data Science – Reg Med Lab

DATA SCIENCE FOR THE REGENERATIVE MEDICINE LAB Event Description How can regenerative medicine goals be advanced by having better computational data science platforms. How do we best handle our data, how do we design our experiment so that we are collecting the right data, and how can we optimize that collection knowing how we want it to look. What tools are available to students and faculty that can improve their collection and analysis. Is there a place for machine learning in regenerative medicine, and how would we implement it? Learn all this and more at our DATA SCIENCE WORKSHOP, featuring David [...]

Virtual Writing Workshop

Virtual/Online

THE SURPRISING SECRET FIRST STEP TO SILENCING YOUR INNER CRITIC WITH MELISSA E. ANDERS In our current situation of a global pandemic, suddenly, you have the time to analyze your data and write your paper or grant. And, when you sit down to write, there is an opening for your inner critic. You will know the voice of your inner critic because it is stopping you from taking action. It may be any combination of doubt, questioning, confusion, circling, overanalyzing, perfecting and uncertainty. You also know, that even though it may feel like just a whisper, there is another part of [...]

How to be a Better Ally in Research and Study

Virtual/Online

Building a Respectful Community: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace In this session, participants will learn what it takes to build a respectful and inclusive community by focusing on practices and policies that centre equity and diversity. Beginning with a discussion of the terms equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), the group will explore how EDI matters in the work and research spaces at UBC. This is followed by an examination of bias and microaggressions, how they manifest and what we can do about them. Led by Rachael Sullivan from the Equity and Inclusion office at UBC and taking place September [...]

BCREGMED Media Engagement Workshop

Virtual/Online

News media set agendas, shape policies and impact spending. Issues that are effectively profiled by the news media are seen as more important than those not receiving such attention. However, often the people most expert in a particular field have difficulty translating their deep knowledge into commentary that is accessible and engaging to a lay audience made up of those who don’t have a science background or specialized vocabulary. BCREGMED is providing a two day media engagement workshop for its graduate students, post docs, and PIs. The goal being to provide support with concrete tools and strategies to increase their [...]
