McGill Seminar Series in Quantitative Life Sciences and Medicine

Please note the McGill Seminar Series in Quantitative Life Sciences and Medicine has been cancelled for the Winter of 2020.

QLS is joining efforts with the Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine (CAMBAM), the McGill initiative in Computational Medicine (MiCM) and the Ludmer Center to offer weekly interdisciplinary seminars. Seminars featured by QLS are indicated in bold.

All seminars are held in the Montreal Neurological Institute, deGrandpre Communications Centre, from 12:00 to 1:00.
