Doris Metcalf, Graduate Program Coordinator for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, has given 31 years of unparalleled service to UBC and the Faculty of Medicine. She is an ongoing source of support and guidance to the faculty and students. She is dedicated, efficient, creative and promotes the well-being of others, thereby ensuring a memorable UBC experience for our alumni. Doris’ self-motivated contributions extend across our academic community. She organizes Imagine Day and Graduation Tea for our undergraduates and was instrumental in encouraging our graduate students to form the BMB-GSA, which engages members of the department in social, recreational, and academic events.
