Seminar Series 2017-2018

Our year-long Seminar Series explores current cell biology topics for systems ranging from single-cell organisms to the complexity of the human brain. We host experts in the field from both Canadian and international universities and research institutions. Seminars are open to all who are interested; no registration is required.
