Lam Lab in UBC’s 3MT 2017

3 Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition where participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their thesis project to a non-specialist audience. This year, both Master’s student Taha Qaiser and PhD student Raza Malik from the Human Locomotion Research Lab qualified for UBC’s 3MT finals (top 8 in the whole of the university!). More recently, Taha placed first at the School of Kinesiology’s 3MT competition as a part of the Kinesiology Graduate Student Research Day. Well done Raza and Taha!


A Visit from City Councillor Andrea Reimer

Last week, City of Vancouver Council Member Andrea Reimer visited ICORD to take a tour of PARC and the Human Locomotion Research Lab to learn about the research and community work being done here. Councillor Reimer chairs the the Nomination Sub-Committee for the City of Vancouver and supported PARC’s nomination for a City of Vancouver Award earlier this year. If you missed it, take a look at this awesome video by Accessible Media Inc in which Councillor Reimer speaks about PARC’s impact on the community.

 As a part of the tour, Councillor Reimer was able to check out the Ekso in action. From left to right: Taha Qaiser, Alison Williams, Kyle Gieni, Coucillor Andrea Reimer.
