Chan Gunn Pavilion

Chan Gunn Pavilion serves as new home for sports medicine and exercise science research at UBC

In March 2018, the Chan Gunn Pavilion opened its doors on Wesbrook Mall to serve as the new hub for sports medicine and exercise science research at UBC.

The building was made possible after Dr. Chan Gunn, a pioneering Vancouver physician in the field of pain relief, generously donated $5 million to the University for the construction, to create a space exclusively for exercise and sport medicine teaching, research, and patient care.

The 13,480-square-foot pavilion is now one of the first academic sports medicine units in the world, and the first in Canada.

Along with physicians and physical therapists who treat about 3,500 patients a month in the Allan McGavin Sports Medicine Clinic, the Chan Gunn Pavilion is home to numerous faculty and graduate students from the School of Kinesiology, who use the space to explore the body’s response to exercise. The building includes rehabilitation space, gym and labs for research into movement mechanisms, injury recovery strategies and optimal exercise training for people with cancer and other chronic diseases.
