Wall Scholars Speaker Series

Each year, a selection of UBC faculty members at various stages of their careers are appointed as Wall Scholars by the Peter Wall Institute with the aim of enhancing the exchange of ideas and inspiring new research advances and collaborations.

The Wall Scholars Speaker Series offers a fascinating glimpse into the cutting edge, interdisciplinary research being conducted at UBC. After working throughout the year to distill their lectures down to ten minute talks, our 2015-2016 Wall Scholars shared their knowledge in a series of accessible videos in which the scholars stepped up to tackle topics as diverse as the war on drugs, ocean warming, nanotechnology, DNA testing and much more.
