As part of its Centennial celebration, UBC hosted a series of Emerging Research Workshops in the spring of 2016.
Presented in partnership with the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, the workshops brought together researchers from around the world to focus on three areas in which UBC is emerging as a potential global leader: Indigenous studies (February), water (March), and epigenetics (April).
Each event consisted of a core, two-day academic workshop where leading international scholars explored and advanced these areas of research strength at UBC. There was also a public event relevant to each theme area to engage the broader community in a robust conversation around these important topics.
