UBC News is inviting members of its community to describe, in 100 words, a new development in your field of study that is really cool. Submissions must be made by Nov. 6 at http://news.ubc.ca/nextbigthing/.
It is part of an effort to expand the annual UBC Next Big Thing project. Submissions will be posted, and guest editors David Ng (Michael Smith Laboratories) and Paul Cubbon (Sauder School of Business) will help UBC News choose 10 submissions with game-changing impacts to feature in our 2014 Next Big Thing edition, published in mid-December. Feature stories will be written by volunteer journalism students.
