PCIGR hosts the Canadian Minister of Science and Sport

June 17, 2019

                                                 On Friday June 13, PCIGR had the pleasure to host the Honourable Dr. Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, Sports and Persons with Disabilities, accompanied by Dr. Gail Murphy, UBC VP Research. Each team member introduced themselves and described their research. The Minister asked many questions and was very excited about the diverse and wide-ranging research carried out at PCIGR. Prs. Juli Carillo (LFS) and Camilla Speller (Anthro) joined us to discuss their work and collaboration with PCIGR through UBC Research Excellence Clusters. It was a very stimulating experience!
