A clinician-scientist in the field of exercise medicine for health, Dr. Karim Khan was a CIHR New Investigator (2001-2007). He was instrumental in the development of the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility, one of only nine UBC senate-approved centres. One major mandate of the centre is to reduce fall-related hip fractures in seniors and Dr. Khan is theme leader for that component. He is an energetic advocate for the health benefits of physical activity and is internationally recognized for research that aims to improve the health outcomes of vulnerable seniors with increased risk of fracture.
