On this episode of #ShareScience, we spoke with Dr. Oliver Wearing, Mitacs Industrial Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences at the University of British Columbia. He recently won the InsideScientific Science Communications content creator kit giveaway at the American Physiology Summit 2023.
Oliver’s research looks at developing next-generation radiotelemetry devices to monitor cardiovascular function in small and large animal models, to better enable us to generate safe and effective translational therapies for humans with spinal cord injury to restore their cardiovascular function. Oliver shares what led him to study the relationship between cardiovascular physiology and the autonomic nervous system, how achieving his various positions and awards have allowed him to pursue his research goals, and where he hopes to take his work next.
