While we build our new home, the SBME is currently housed in UBC’s Biomedical Research Centre building.

Here, you’ll find our Student Services Office, active laboratories, innovation spaces and more.

For student programs, admissions, graduation, and awards, see contact information further down the page and email the appropriate address. SBME Reception will not be able to answer questions or provide information for these inquiries; emails to reception are forwarded to the appropriate team member, but note that this will increase wait times for a response.

The Student Services office in BRC 251 is open Monday – Friday, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. It is highly recommended that students pre-book an advising appointment, as drop-in advising is not always possible.

BMEG students are encouraged to make advising appointments using PD Portal or by emailing
