The University of British Columbia and the Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation today welcomed His Royal Highness The Duke of York, KG, to UBC’s Vancouver campus to dedicate the cornerstone of the new Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health.

The Duke of York  also toured the existing Brain Research Centre to meet with students and learn about their work.

Construction continues on the centre, which is set to open later this year.

In 1983, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh opened the Imaging Research Centre which preceded the Brain Research Centre, a partner in the creation of the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health.
