Seminars

In collaboration with the Department of Bioengineering, we host seminar presentations at which Canadian and international experts are given the opportunity to present their cutting-edge research. Requests to present a seminar should be directed to our seminar coordinator.

Seminars are usually held from 1:00pm - 2:00pm Friday  in Duff Medical Building and in MacDonald Engineering Building alternatively. Please click on the poster links for more information.

To receive seminar news send an email to LISTSERV [at] LISTS.MCGILL.CA containing, in the body of the email, the message: SUBSCRIBE BBME-SEMINAR-NOTICE Your_First_Name Your_Last_Name
