Dear Participants and Guest speakers,

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the eighth edition of the Unibadan Conference of Biomedical Research (UCBR), a biennial conference organized by the Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. This conference will be in HYBRID format, which will allow for both physical and virtual participation of attendees. UCBR-8 is scheduled to hold Monday 11th to Friday 15th September, 2023 at the Abdullahi Gandoje Hall, Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan.

The purpose of the conference is to serve as a central point for Biomedical Scientists from various background and disciplines to meet and exchange ideas on contemporary science. Its objective is also to improve opportunity for young scientists to be exposed to the language and culture of good science through interaction between budding and established scientists from areas such as Clinical and Laboratory Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Veterinary sciences, Pure and Applied Sciences as well as other Life Sciences and related Agriculture Sciences.
In the previous editions of the conference, many scientists in various Universities in Nigeria and abroad showed keen interest and participated actively in UCBR-1 (August, 2008), UCBR-2 (July 2010), UCBR-3 (July 2012) and UCBR-4 (July 2014), UCBR-5 (July 2016), UCBR-6 (July 2018) and UCBR-7 (September 2021). Most of the papers presented at previous editions of UCBR have been published in the flagship journal of the Faculty-Archives of Basic and Applied Medicine.

Ibadan is a place loved by many visitors. The proximity of the city to Lagos and the warmness of the dwellers to visitors makes Ibadan a thriving commercial centre and one of the largest and most populous cities in the world. Ibadan is known for having many firsts, including the first television station in Africa, the first Olympic sized stadium in Africa and the first Nigerian University. It also houses the National Archives, the famous Cocoa house.
