Oliver Wearing

Postdoctoral Fellow


Dr. Oliver Wearing is a Mitacs Industrial Postdoctoral Fellow & UBC Killam Laureate in Dr. Christopher West’s lab, affiliated with the Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. Funded through an NSERC Alliance grant, his research aims to develop next-generation radiotelemetry devices (with industry partner Transonic Systems Inc.) that monitor the cardiovascular function of small and large animal models, with the goal that this technology can better enable us to generate safe and effective translational therapies to restore cardiovascular function following spinal cord injury.
