Science Dean John Hepburn Has Been Appointed UBC Vice-President, Research

Effective October 1, 2005

Science Dean John Hepburn succeeds Dr. Indira Samarasekera, who was selected as President of the University of Alberta last November.

“I am delighted that Dr. Hepburn is taking on this very important responsibility,” says UBC President Martha Piper. “His international reputation as an outstanding researcher, coupled with his commitment to research at the undergraduate level, makes this an ideal appointment in an area of central importance.”

Hepburn, who has been Dean of the Faculty of Science at UBC since 2003, is a keen proponent of interdisciplinary research and conducts research on the interface between physics and chemistry. He studies molecular beams and laser chemistry, working in the area of advanced spectroscopy and imaging research, and was this month elected to the Royal Society of Canada.
