Founded in 1882, RSC consists of approximately 1,700 Fellows chosen by their peers for their exceptional contributions to the natural and social sciences, and the humanities. Election to the RSC is considered the highest honour attainable by scholars, artists and scientists   in Canada.Dr. Clyde Hertzman    (Faculty of Graduate Studies) investigates human development through the entire life cycle. Dr. Eva-Marie Kr?ller    (Department of English) specializes in comparative Canadian and European literature. Dr. Sarah P. Otto    (Department of Zoology) studies population genetics and evolutionary biology. Dr. William Rees    (School of Community and Regional Planning) focuses on the public policy and planning implications of global environmental trends. Dr. Laurence Ricou    (Department of English) is a specialist on Canadian Prairie regionalism and Prairie writing. Dr. Natalie Strynadka    (Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) explores structural characterization   of bacterial membrane components.Dr. Yu Tian Wang    (Brain Research Centre) researches the molecular mechanisms responsible for regulating the function and intracellular traf?cking of neurotransmitter receptors   critical to brain function.NEWSINTERDISCIPLINARY PRIZE   AWARDED TO UBC TRIOUBC?s Drs. Walter Hardy, Doug Bonn and Ruixing Liang   were awarded the 2005 Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering. Since 2000, the trio has worked on re?ning pure, high-temperature superconducting crystals that allow them to monitor the behaviour of electrons at extremely cold temperatures. Their research aims to create superconductors that could be conveniently used in a variety of commercial applications, such as computers that do not generate heat. Currently, their lab is the leading source of these crystals, allowing them to collaborate with more than a dozen labs   around the world. The Brockhouse Canada Prize is an interdisciplinary research award that comes with a   $250,000 team research grant from the Natural Sciences   and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).From left to right> Drs.

Photos> NSERCA partnership between Dr. Helen Burt?s research laboratory in UBC?s Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Angiotech Pharmaceuticals Inc. has earned the 2006 NSERC Synergy Award for Innovation from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).Their drug-eluting medical device, called Taxus, offers an innovative new way to treat coronary heart disease. Taxus is a combination of Angiotech?s water-insoluble drug Paclitaxel (which inhibits cellular mechanisms involved in angiogenesis, in?ammation and scar formation) with Dr. Burt?s development of a polymer-based carrier that ef?ciently delivers Paclitaxel to the body. More than two million patients were successfully implanted with Taxus within the ?rst 18 months of its launch   in the U.S.UBC?s Burt Lab has worked together with Angiotech   to create two technologies with 43 patents in 26 countries. Vancouver-based Angiotech specializes in the science of   adding drugs to medical devices and now has 14 facilities   in six countries.Dr. Helen Burt.
