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 room ENGTR 0070, in the Trottier building. Please click on the poster links for more information.
