The UBC Quarter Century Club

Dr. Elke Roland is an Associate Professor in the Division of Neurology since 1993 with a focus in Pediatric Neurology, Neonatal Neurology and Neuromuscular Diseases.

Dr. Roland was inducted into the UBC Quarter Century Club, with the designation of Tempus Fugit for her 35 years of service in 2023.

The UBC Quarter Century Club was established in 1996 by President David Strangway to recognize active full-time faculty members and librarians with 25 years of service. In 2003, the club began recognizing active members who have reached the additional milestone of 35 years of service. This group is known collectively as Tempus Fugit, or “time flies.”

The first members of the Club were those faculty still active at UBC prior to the Club’s establishment in the fall of 1996. Faculty members who had retired prior to fall 1996 were not considered to be eligible. New members are inducted at a special dinner held each fall.

Dr. Roland’s Career Highlights:
– Recipient of over 30 grants to support her research.
– Published over 40 journal articles to date.
– Over 135 presentations discussing her work.
– Former Director of the Neuromuscular Diseases Clinic at British Columbia’s Children’s Hospital.
– Member of the Pediatric Neurology Residency Training Committee, 2015-present.
– Member of the International Child Neurology Association.

Congratulations Dr. Roland and thank you for your years of service to the department and the children of British Columbia.
