Earl W. Davie Symposium

November 2, 2021 | 9:00AM to 4:00PM (PDT)

Virtual Symposium

This annual 1-day symposium, in honour of Dr. Earl W. Davie, features presentations by local experts in vascular biology, hemostasis-thrombosis, cardiovascular and neurologic disease.

Dr. Earl Davie’s research had elucidated many areas of coagulation and led to effective treatments for patients with a range of bleeding disorders. He and his colleagues devised the revolutionary Waterfall Sequence for Blood Clotting. Dr. Davie applied cutting edge technologies to identify and characterize the coagulation proteins in detail throughout the 1960s and ’70s, and subsequently isolated, sequenced, and expressed the genes for these clotting factors. For his many critical achievements, Dr. Davie had been widely acclaimed and has received numerous international awards. He was a member of the US National Academy of Science and was a Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Be sure to mark you calendar and join us for CBR’s 15th Annual Earl W. Davie Symposium, featuring presentations by both Canadian and international experts in vascular biology, hemostasis-thrombosis, cardiovascular and neurologic disease.  This full day Symposium will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, at the UBC Robson Square.

We anticipate this year’s symposium will be held in a hybrid format, with opportunities for attendees to join in-person or virtually. More details to follow.
