Introducing our keynote speaker: Dr. Eli Puterman!
Dr. Eli Puterman is an assistant professor at the University of British Columbia’s School of Kinesiology where he studies the short- and long-term effects of exercise on limiting the damage caused by chronic stress on our bodies. His research demonstrates that adults who maintain an active lifestyle do not have similar wear and tear in the face of adversity compared to those who are less active. He is recognized as a Canada Research Chair and a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar, and has previously been awarded early career awards from the Society of Behavioral Medicine, the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research, and in 2018, the International Society for Psychoneuroendocrinology.
Getting into research can be hard – but it doesn’t have to be. We have some of the brightest minds presenting at LSRN 2019.
Our workshops will give you all the tips and tricks for how to get started with your journey into research. Bring something to take notes with!

We’re at Life Sciences Institute (also known as Life Sciences Centre, or LSC) at the UBC Vancouver campus. It’s a short walk from UBC Hospital and opposite the pharmacy building, and visible at the intersection between Wesbrook Mall and Agronomy Road.
Parking is available at the Health Sciences Parkade.
We’ll have clear signs to the main lecture halls, where our event will kick off in! Still lost? Check out the LSI on UBC Wayfinding.
