Celebrate Research Week March 4 – 11 2011

Research, the systematic search for new knowledge, happens every day at UBC. Every day, through scholarly publication, new ideas developed here form a platform for further exploration at research institutions around the world. At UBC, we take one week every year to reflect on, to illuminate and to educate our community about the richness of discovery in science and the humanities. It’s a week in March to Celebrate Research, a mirror of our September Celebrate Learning Week, and an invaluable window on the best of what remarkable minds are doing in this remarkable place.

Algae may sit at the base of the marine food chain, but they play a key role in creating habitat and some can even swim around like bacteria. For these and other reasons to be revealed at a March 6 lecture at the Beaty Biodiversity Research Centre, postdoctoral fellow Matt Herron will convince you that algae are “way cool.”

The public talk is part of UBC’s Celebrate Research Week, which will showcase the latest research in areas ranging from mobility health to sustainability and socially conscious marketing March 4 – 11 at both the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses.

Now in its 11th year, Celebrate Research Week features public talks, workshops, poster presentations and an annual awards gala on March 10 at the newly revitalized Old Auditorium to honour the best and the brightest at UBC, including the Killam Fellowships, the Charles A. McDowell Award for Excellence in Research, the Jacob Biely Research Prize and the President’s Award for Public Education through Media.

The Faculty of Medicine, along with its health authority and clinical partners, is presenting four mobility health experts at a free public talk at St. Paul’s Hospital on March 8. Moderated by Prof. Heather McKay, director of the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility, the talk will cover best practices for recovering from joint replacements, explore risk factors of bone fractures and shed light on the links between exercise and children with arthritis.
Other highlights of Celebrate Research Week include:

Visioning low-carbon communities to build energy literacy
