Blood for Life (UBC Blood for Life) (President: Simran Parmar)
A UBC science club aimed to diversify and expand Canada’s stem cell donor and blood donor registry for Canadian Blood Services as well as NetCAD. Our goal at UBC Blood For Life is to make sure that every individual is able to participate in our cause even if he or she is unable to aid in the more traditional route of donation. Our aim is to raise awareness about the opportunities of stem cell donation, blood donation to Canadian Blood Services as well as to NetCAD, the only blood research center in all of Canada located on campus. Working along side Canadian Blood Services as well as the UBC Medicine Stem Cell Club, our goal is to diversify and expand Canada’s stem cell donor and blood donor registry, to improve the chance for patients to find the match they need to save their lives. As well as increase awareness about blood research and the possibility to donate to NetCAD.

Science One Survivors (President: Su Ji An)
Since 1994, the Science One Survivors has served current Science One students and alumni. The club has two goals: to aid in the lifestyle transition into university and the demanding workload of Science One, and to connect alumni, professors and current students in an engaged network of passionate learners. These objectives are pursued through several events, both academically and socially focused, which allow alumni to provide experience and guidance as well as learn from discourse with the Class of 2014-15. Because Science One is radically different from the typical first year Science experience, our events are tailored towards the unique needs and qualities of our small but strong Science One community.

Students for Science Based Medicine (UBC Students for Science Based Medicine) (President: Deb Chen)
Students for Science Based Medicine is a new club that focuses on examining the scientific evidence for complementary and alternative medicines (CAMs) and translating this knowledge to the community. Much of the information the public receives about CAMs is unregulated and unsubstantiated by the scientific method. By giving talks in the community, we hope to teach general tools in critical evaluation of the evidence behind health-related claims so that people can make informed decisions about their health.
