Since all 4 graduate students have now qualified to become PhD candidates, the Teves lab celebrated all of our students’ accomplishments with a uniquely Canadian game of 5-pin bowling.
Dr. Sheila Teves is one of three UBC Faculty of Medicine Principal Investigators to be awarded a Stem Cell Network Early Career Researcher Jump-Start Award. This investment in basic stem cell biology will fund a project entitled “Transcription regulation of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes during maturation and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy” and is a collaborative work between the Teves lab and the Tibbits lab, led by Dr. Glen Tibbits, in BC Childrens Hospital and Simon Fraser University.

Jennifer joins the Teves lab as our newest co-op student. She is currently a 3rd year Biology major at UBC. As a co-op student in the lab, she will examine how mESCs differentiate into Neural Progenitor Cells. Welcome!
To cap off the end of 2021, the Teves lab went on an outing to see the fantastic Festival of Lights at the VanDusen Botanical Garden. The park is transformed into a wintry fairy-tale garden, with each area showcasing different themes through magical show of lights. Highly recommended!
November 23, 2021. It’s been over a year since we last gathered for a group photo. So here we are! Still growing stronger together.

We’re very proud to announce that James was recently awarded one of UBC’s 4-Year Doctoral Fellowship (4YF) to support his graduate research in the Teves lab. Congratulations!!
UBC Biochemistry undergrads Iris Shen, Quintin Towert, and Sehee Shin start the fall term as student researchers in the Teves lab. Welcome!
For our 3rd year anniversary, the Teves lab enjoyed a beautiful hike to Eagle’s Bluffs on Friday July 9, 2021.
A tradition in the making …
Our lab birthday present? A brand new, custom-built TIRF/HILO microscope with high power laser launch and photomanipulation module for single molecule imaging in live-cells. WooHOO!
BCRegMed held a “Dragon’s Den” competition last month to support trainees in British Columbia working on projects related to Regenerative Medicine.
Graduate student Rachel Price was selected as one of six winners this year. Congratulations to Rachel!
Thank you to BCRegMed for this honor and support.
