CIHR Skin Research Training Centre
Welcome from Director

Greetings from the CIHR Skin Research Training Centre Director - Dr Harvey Lui.

The CIHR Skin Research Training Centre at the UBC and Vancouver General Hospital Department of Dermatology and Skin Science is a comprehensive training centre for clinical fellows and trainee scientists in Canada.
 
The CIHR-SRTC was launched in 2007 with $1.8 million of financial support from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (IMHA). Its mission is to significantly expand basic and clinical research in dermatology and to train new recruits in skin research. Since early 2008, the SRTC has recruited clinical and research trainees to the centre to develop their research skills and to expand our knowledge of skin health in Canada.
 
The CIHR-SRTC trains the best in clinical and research dermatology. We have designed a comprehensive curriculum that is constantly enhanced with CIHR-SRTC Scholar and faculty feedback. Regular didactic sessions are held on a broad aspects of skin research including basic skin biology, clinical dermatology, and knowledge translation. CIHR-SRTC trainees attend journal clubs and present their research work on a regular basis in the Centre as well as at national and international conferences. Scholars supported by the CIHR-SRTC are able to attend clinical observerships in the offices of dermatologists where they can see first hand the clinical challenges facing skin patients. The CIHR-SRTC is also pleased to provide workshop sessions on professional skills development.
 
The SRTC is committed to delivering an improved skin research capacity to Canada and to significantly improving the health and welfare of Canadians.
