Gairdner Highschool Symposium: Trainee Event

The Gairdner High School Symposium is a half-day event held each fall that gives secondary students and teachers the opportunity to hear from Gairdner award-winning scientists and attend a behind-the-scenes tour of BC Children’s Hospital’s research facilities.

This event is hosted in conjunction with the Center for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics (CMMT) and the Canada Gairdner Foundation, recognizing the world’s most creative and accomplished biomedical scientists who are advancing humanity and the world.

In 2020, four BCCHR trainees (Fanny Lemarie, Postdoctoral Fellow – Hayden Lab, Alyssa Kirlin, UBC PhD Candidate – Kobor Lab, Nairuz Elazzabi, Master’s Student – Goldowitz Lab, and Hannah-Ruth Engelbrecht, PhD Student – Kobor Lab) presented virtually about their personal journeys into science, challenges they’ve overcome, and a live demo on how to extract DNA from a banana!
