Our Vision

Life Sciences Research Night (LSRN) is an annual event aimed towards educating and inspiring undergraduate students about the world of opportunity available in research.

We welcome students of all academic backgrounds and experiences. Whether you are curious about opportunities after graduation, would like to learn about current research happening at UBC, or are eager to #getintoresearch yourself, you’ll find what you’re looking for at LSRN.

Meet the 2018 keynote speaker 

Dr. Claudia Krebs

When Dr. Krebs experienced the struggles medical students have with complex materials her neuroanatomy classroom, she explored innovative ways to address these struggles. She took the basic concept of a blended learning environment, which allowed her to distill complex neuroanatomical functional relationships into 10-minute video clips. 

The fear of neuroanatomy or neuroscience has been coined “neurophobia” and Dr. Krebs has been working with her team to provide easily accessible and understandable resources for students to overcome this apprehension.

Dr. Krebs has developed similar high quality resources for Head and Neck anatomy and is currently in the process of developing more for all aspects of human anatomy. Of particular note is the fact that all of these resources are being developed in interprofessional teams including all health professions and with undergraduate students as co-producers.

The organizers

LSRN is a collaborative effort.

Life Sciences Research Night is a collaboration between URO and several clubs at UBC, each bringing unique expertise along with the funding necessary to make the event a success.
