To mark the 30th anniversary of the Therapeutics Initiative, we’re excited to introduce a unique format for this year’s event, with an in-person gathering on Friday, October 18, followed by hybrid (virtual and in-person) sessions on Saturday, October 19. Hosted at UBC Robson Square in downtown Vancouver, this central location offers convenient access to nearby popular attractions, making it an ideal location for attendees and family members to explore the city’s offerings outside of conference hours.

Keynote presentations will be delivered by internationally renowned experts, Dr. Derelie (aka Dee) Mangin (Professor, McMaster University) and Dr. John Mandrola (Cardiac Electrophysiologist, Baptist Health). In addition, a diverse lineup of both new and veteran faculty members from the Therapeutics Initiative will present on various relevant topics.

Furthermore,  this year’s event offers a variety of social activities, including an evening reception at the Glowbal at Telus Garden and a guided gallery tour for family members at the Vancouver Art Gallery, both conveniently located just minutes away from the conference venue.
