UBC researchers are leading the world towards a brighter future. To celebrate UBC’s Centennial year, we held a series of programs that brought the best of UBC research to communities across the country. Each program in the Centennial Speaker Series featured key UBC researchers in areas as diverse as earthquakes, developmental psychology, human rights, and personalized medicine, presenting highlights from their work before engaging in a brief discussion about the important role their research plays in modern society.
