As the year comes to a close, there are many accomplishments, events and stories to reflect on and many more to look forward to in the year ahead.
It was a busy time on campus with visits to BC Children’s Hospital from Captain Jack Sparrow and Santa Claus; the opening of the new Teck Acute Care Centre and Family Immunization Clinic; and popular events such as Discovery Talks, Mini Med School, and Discovery Days, to name a few.

Discoveries were made, exciting new research projects were launched and knowledge was shared at the institute this year. Here are a few more of our stories from 2017:
