My name is Abdo, I’m a 5th Year Electrical Engineering (Biomedical Option), I have done solid state physics research at TRIUMF, imaging research with UBC Dermatology and MEMS/Ultrasound research at UBC ECE. A not so fun fact about me is that my favourite colour is brown.

I initially got into research when a TA referred me to a prof.

Hi! My name is Amelia, and I’m in third year microbiology & immunology with a minor in physiology. I am just coming off of a 16-month co-op term at the Vancouver Prostate Center, where I got to lead my own project to develop bladder cancer organoids. When I’m not in class or in a lab, I like to crochet little plushies, like our mascot Rexy!

I first got into research in first year. as a mentee in the REX program. The project we conducted also got me interested into Microbiology, which is now the major that I am pursuing. I presented at MURC as a REX mentee, and used the skills I gained to begin a research assistant position at the Eye Care Centre.

I’m Ana, and I’m heading into the fourth year of my honours behavioural neuroscience degree. I’ve been involved in research for most of my undergrad, from the REX program through to working on my honours thesis last year at the Infant Studies Centre and this year at the Language Development Centre. My work has been in the field of infant language development, with a focus on baby neuroimaging and, this year, on infants’ early word representations. When I’m not reading, talking, or learning about cool research, I enjoy listening to music, going to the theatre, appreciating Vancouver’s natural beauty, and picking up new languages. I’m also really looking forward to helping more students find the research position that’s right for them this year!

I got into research through the REX program in my first year! It was my first opportunity to find out what was out there and how the process worked. I had a remarkably supportive mentor who did everything he could to make it an amazing experience. He also got me my first volunteer lab position! While I initially got into research through the REX program, I’ve since branched out and am now working at the UBC Infant Studies Centre and Language Development Centre, studying early infant language development and working on my honours thesis.

I actually got my first research experience thanks to the REX program! I ended up volunteering in my REX mentor’s lab after the program. The experience I got in her lab was what ultimately got me my first co-op position at a biotech company.

My initial experience with research was through a design team called BIOMOD. Here we aimed on creating a DNA nano-molecule to act as a drug delivery device. This excited my research interest and gave me a good understanding of the process.

My name is Caitlyn and I’m a 4th year Integrated Sciences student. I was first interested in getting into research after my first year of undergrad, so I emailed basically every professor I could find that was doing research in my areas of interested. I was able to get two volunteering positions in a microbiology lab and a genetics lab, and this experience helped me get a co-op position in clinical research. I’m excited to continue to be a part of URO this year, and to get involved in the research coach program!


I emailed many microbiology and genetics professors in the summer after my second year and heard back from a couple of them. I ended up volunteering in the Hallam and Av-Gay labs throughout the summer and my third year, and then got a co-op position working in clinical research at BCCH.

Hi, my name is Jane! I’m entering my 5th year in the Faculty of Science as an Integrated Science Major. I’m integrating biomedical engineering and medical genetics courses. I am involved in clinical research at Sports Cardiology BC at UBC Hospital. I am also the athletic trainer for the UBC Women’s Volleyball Team and the Canada’s Women’s National Volleyball Team. A fun fact about me is that I joined the National asking Patrol when I was 16!

 

I made a point to involve myself in clinical settings. I took initiative and offered to help anywhere there might be a need to broaden my exposure. The hard work was noticed and I was told to contact a PhD candidate at Sports Cardiology BC. I then became involved in the lab: quickly moved from data entry to more administrative work, then onto a clinical research internship followed by training new volunteers. I think my openness to learning and being flexible/accessible differentiated me from other RAs and propelled my involvement.

Hi, I’m Jina and I am currently in mu 3rd year of the Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Sciences in the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, UBC. I first got involved in research after discussing the topic of bacterial infections with one of my professors, which led me to work as a research assistant alongside a Postdoctoral Fellow in a microbiology lab. I then had the opportunity to conduct a personal research project exploring the presence of heteroresistance in specific bacterial species in response to antibiotic treatments. Because of my passion for research, I got involved in the Undergraduate Research Opportunities organization to help other students embark on their journey in research. A fun fact about me is that I am also involved in several first-aid organizations and am starting my own program here at UBC. If you have questions regarding my involvement in research or in the first-aid community, please feel free to contact me!


I initially got into research when I contacted a professor from one of my microbiology courses. After having a conversation with her regarding Campylobacter jejuni, she offered me a lab position.

My name is Kavi Grewal and I’m a 3rd year integrated science student at UBC with a focus on physiology and microbiology. I initially got into research by contacting a principal investigator at the UBC Center for Blood Research in the summer after my first year. By working at URO, I’m hoping I can use the experiences I’ve had to help other undergraduate students pursue their passion for research as well. Some of my interests include politics, spending time with friends, and playing basketball.


I initially got into research when I cold-emailed a PI at the UBC Center for Blood Research whose research I was interested in. In the email, I showed interest in his work and attached my CV.

My name is Lily Yang and am entering my fourth year in CAPS! I am currently on co-op at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, where I work with the 3D tissue engineering group to create in vitro human cerebral blood vessels to model various pathologies involved in Alzheimer’s disease. I have also previously been involved in clinical research at Sports Cardiology BC, where I worked with masters athletes throughout BC in a five year prospective study on their cardiovascular health. In my spare time, I love trail running and working out, as well as helping out my parents at our family-owned ice cream stand in downtown Victoria!


My first research experience was a clinical volunteer research position at Sports Cardiology BC, which was introduced to me by my first year orientation leader (and current URO co-president) Jane! My initial tasks included large volumes of data review and entry, as well as hands-on clinical tasks such as performing electrocardiograms and spirometry assessments on our study participants.

Hi! My name is Mahta and I am in my final year as a Microbiology and Immunology student. I developed a deep interest in research during high school and I had the opportunity to get involved with a lab at UBC. By shadowing graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, I was inspired to further pursue research in my undergrad, which is why I also chose the major I am in. Throughout the years, I have gained many valuable experiences and I look forward to helping more students get involved with research! In my free time, I love listening to music, going to museums, and café-hopping in the city.

 

I initially got into research by looking at different supervisors based on the area I was interested in and read about what their lab was involved with. From there, I contacted the supervisor to see what opportunities they had available.

Hello, my name is Neall. I am going into my 5th year of biophysics. A fun fact about myself is that I accidentally went to Andorra when I was in high school. Now a days, I am working at BC Children’s Hospital in the department of Rheumatology. There I do clinical research on Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.


I got into research from the recommendation of a cardiologist. After job shadowing them, they talked to a PhD student on my behalf. Afterwards, the PhD offered me a volunteer position as a research assistant.
