Aspect Biosystems: A Vancouver Visionary

The Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) identified UBC start-up, Aspect Biosystems, as one of three companies that exemplify Vancouver's entrepreneurial buzz. The 3D bioprinting company was chosen because it demonstrates the strength Vancouver businesses derive from combining great ideas with a stable business climate, a first-class education system and a close association with the natural environment. The impact UBC has had on Vancouver's climate of innovation can be seen in how this research, started in ECE’s Walus Lab, has flourished in the last two years.
