Seminar Series 2022-2023

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 will be held on Wednesdays, from 11:30am - 12:30pm, in the Strathcona Anatomy & Dentistry Building, Rm. 1/12.
