UBC Inventions + Discoveries

Imagine growing human tissue to help test drugs without human clinical trials, or creating valuable eco-friendly fertilizers from wastewater.

These are just two of the ways in which licensing UBC technologies or forming spin-off companies around UBC discoveries is leading to the development of game-changing new products and services.

Technologies and spin-off companies from UBC and its affiliated hospitals were instrumental in forming British Columbia’s dynamic biotech sector.

Today companies such as Westport continue to stimulate the economy and to create products, treatments and processes that advance the health of both people and the planet.
