Dr. Philip Barker
Vice Principal, Research
Associate Director, Office of Research Services
My goal is to ensure the ORS team provides, through policy, procedure, and performance, the best possible service to the Okanagan research community. The ORS team is happy, skilled, and professional – and completely dedicated to the research at UBCO. I also wish to support UBC’s larger research mission and vision through continually re-evaluating our programs and activity to ensure we are allocating research resources in a way that best complements this vision.

Associate Manager, Behavioural Research Ethics Board
As the Associate Manager of the Behavioural Research Ethics Board at UBC Okanagan, my goal is to provide superior REB administration so that the ethical review process is smooth and seamless, allowing researchers to proceed with their research without delay. I believe that the review process should be seen as the valuable service that it is, rather than an administrative hurdle.
