Oliver Wearing

Postdoctoral Fellow


Dr. Oliver Wearing is a UBC Killam Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Dr. Christopher West’s lab, affiliated with the Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. His research aims to develop innovative surgical techniques and cutting-edge biotelemetry technologies to better understand cardiovascular function in small and large animal models of health and disease. In particular, Dr. Wearing's current work with Dr. West aims to leverage these novel methods to generate safe and effective translational therapies to restore cardiovascular function following spinal cord injury.
