BC Children’s Hospital investigator Dr. Kyla Hildebrand not only conducts research in the area of allergy and clinical immunology, but this clinical assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia is also well known for her leadership in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education.
We regret to inform you the 2020 Gairdner High School Symposium at BC Children's Hospital has been cancelled. It’s the live demonstrations, personal connections and hands-on experiences that make this event such a unique experience for high school students. With the situation regarding COVID-19 continuing to evolve, we decided to act with an abundance of caution and are choosing to cancel the events rather than modifying this popular interactive format.
The Gairdner High School Symposium is a half-day event held each fall that gives secondary students and teachers the opportunity to hear from Gairdner award-winning scientists and attend a behind-the-scenes tour of BC Children's Hospital's research facilities.
This event is hosted in conjunction with the Center for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics (CMMT) and the Canada Gairdner Foundation, recognizing the world’s most creative and accomplished biomedical scientists who are advancing humanity and the world.
Video recordings of past education events, including these lectures, are available online. These may be useful for classes, or of interest to those who are unable to attend events.
