Technology Meets Biology: Changing How We Fight Disease

November 30, 2021

Event Navigation

Immerse yourself into the future of medicine – where virtual reality headsets help doctors diagnose neurodegenerative diseases before symptoms appear, where engineered stem cells regenerate the body to treat disease and wearable motion sensors capture injuries as they occur in real life. This is biomedical engineering.

Biomedical engineering combines engineering and design principles with biology and medicine. Collaboration among diverse minds at the UBC School of Biomedical Engineering has the potential to yield massive leaps forward in how we prevent, manage and treat disease.

Hear from UBC experts Dr. Calvin Kuo, Dr. Manu Madhav and Dr. Nika Shakiba about how the School of Biomedical Engineering is building a bold and boundless community of collaboration, research and clinical expertise fueled by patient experience to bring interdisciplinary, tailor-made medical solutions to patients faster and make them available to everyone. Dr. Peter Zandstra, Director of the School of Biomedical Engineering, will introduce the webinar topic.
