Bonus - Exploring Genetic Research

Thursday, March 4, 2021 | 10:00 - 11:30 am

Join trainees from the UBC Centre for Molecular Medicine & Therapeutics (CMMT) to learn more about genetic research and the translation of basic knowledge into new therapies. 

Participants will get a virtual behind-the-scenes view of CMMT's research facilities, hear from scientists on leading health research and discover a variety of career options in medicine and health sciences. 

More details are coming soon! We're working hard to put together a curriculum that includes Canada's leading investigators, healthcare professionals and up-and-coming researchers. 


Students registering to attend either the Mini Med School Symposium on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 (Scientific Discoveries) OR Thursday, March 4, 2021 (Transforming Care) are eligible to be part of this extra bonus event. 

On the registration form you will have the opportunity to indicate you're interested in participating.
