“Confessions of a University Lifer”

Sid Katz arrived at UBC in 1975 as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pharmacology, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and almost 38 years later is still here. His career path, though, has hardly been a usual one. Not only did he pursue a parallel career as a science and medicine broadcaster on CBC Radio and CTV, he also became CEO of Science World in Vancouver and, in 1997, the Ontario Science Center in Toronto, all while maintaining his research lab at UBC. In his talk, Sid will provide insight into his eclectic career and provide a guide to survival as a University Professor/Researcher.


Please join us for talks, posters, and a wine and cheese reception.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at this event!
