Brent D. G. Page, PhD

I am a passionate scientist with a broad interest and expertise in drug discovery and development. With a strong educational background in medicinal chemistry and cancer biology, I am driven to understand how experimental therapeutics function at a molecular level.  Using state-of-the-art chemical biology techniques, we aim to develop better drug candidates and ultimately bring more effective and safer drugs to patients.  

In addition to my research and teaching roles, I am an active member of the UBC Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) community. This work includes serving as co-chair of our Faculty's EDI committee and participating in UBC equity leadership groups. 

My research team is a positive space, where scientists from diverse backgrounds and identities are valued equally. All members of my team attend EDI seminars and workshops as we collectively strive to adopt EDI best practices. I encourage scientists with diverse backgrounds and lived experiences to join my team and commit to providing an inclusive space to pursue their educational and career goals.
