Medical research at universities has a major impact on people’s health around the world.
How can we ensure that universities do the research that is most desperately needed?

Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) is a student group that tackles these issues through hands-on advocacy. We have already had a lot of success at UBC and other universities, but there is a lot of work left to do, and we need your help! Want to learn more?
