ICORD Trainee Symposium 2017

Last week, students from the Human Locomotion Research Laboratory attended the 7th Annual ICORD Trainee Symposium, a conference organized by students to showcase the amazing work being done by ICORD trainees. This year there were 129 attendees with 40 poster presentations and 10 oral presenters, as well as special plenary talks by Dr. Jeff Petruska, who traveled from the University of Louisville, and University of British Columbia’s Dr. Brett Finlay.

Congratulations to Taha Qaiser (MSc student) and Alison Williams (MSc student) who received third place in the oral presentations and second place in the master’s poster presentations respectively.

Congratulations, Taha! Another Defense Done!

A huge congratulations to Taha Qaiser who successfully defended his Master’s of Science thesis on June 14th 2017! Taha has been a member of the lab since 2011 when he began as an Undergraduate Research Assistant through UBC’s Work Learn program. More recently, Taha’s thesis study which examined if it was possible to train proprioception after spinal cord injury showed some interesting results! We look forward to reading his published results down the road.

Congratulations, Taha! You will be missed.
