Meet the Researcher: Dr. Edward M. Conway

By June 5, 2018No Comments

’m a professor of medicine in the division of hematology-oncology, and the director of the Centre for Blood Research (CBR) at UBC. My research lab is located at the CBR in the Life Sciences Institute (LSI). Trained in Boston as a hematologist-oncologist, I retain a strong interest in pursuing research that is clinically relevant.

Aside from forever writing grant applications to enable my team to pursue our own research endeavours, my role since joining the CBR in 2009 has been to catalyze interactions between clinicians and fundamental scientists, to provide educational and career-enhancing opportunities for trainees at all levels, and to try to help our CBR researchers achieve their goals, by providing whatever resources are available. In all of this, the Canadian Blood Services has been and continues to be a welcoming and crucial partner of mine and of the CBR, with overlapping and complementary objectives.
