(Or…when your boss becomes inducted in CMHF)

Congratulations to Dr. B. Brett Finlay, a 2018 Canadian Medical Hall of Fame (CMHF) laureate. The CMHF organization celebrates past and present medical professionals and/or biomedical researchers. This year CMHF inducted six members: Dr. Philip Berger, Dr. B. Brett Finlay, Dr. Vladimir Hachinski, Dr. Balfour Mount, Dr. Cheryl Rockman-Greenberg, and Dr. Emily Stowe. To learn more about their amazing work see the CMHF website link below.

Check out the video of Finlay research–you might even spot a 1st year KCBSkope!


When applying for grad school I think it is important to find a researcher/lab that not only supports your research growth, but also fosters career and personal development. This spring I’m excited for the opportunity to work at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore as part of an international collaboration.

Stay tuned for more microbial exploring in Singapore!

Congrats Dr. Finlay!

Hello! My name is KCBauer and I am a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia. I am a researcher, writer, musician, and explorer. Originally from Washington DC, I graduated with a BA in Music and BS in Biology in 2014. This blog focuses on the gut microbiota, the trillions of microorganisms that reside along the digestive tract. My grad research at UBC examines the role of the gut microbiota on human health, brain development, and anthropology. When I am not in the lab, I enjoy ambling through Vancity, listening to music, reading science journals, and hiking. If you have questions, ideas for blog topics, suggestions for place to visit in BC, or corrections send me an email at
