About Vancouver Diabetes Research Day

VDRD was founded in 2014 by a group of dedicated trainees from the BC Children’s Hospital Canucks for Kids Fund Childhood Diabetes Laboratories and the UBC Life Sciences Institute’s Diabetes Research Group. Over the past eight years the diabetes research community has grown. VDRD is now a provincial meeting for diabetes researchers from across British Columbia. This annual  event attracts attendees composed of faculty, trainees, sponsors and community partners. Meeting delegates come from the University of British Columbia Vancouver and Okanagan campuses, Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria and the University of Northern British Columbia.

The BCDRN is grateful to the University of British Columbia’s Vice President of Research & Innovation for their financial support of the BC Diabetes Research Network.
