McGill Seminar Series in Quantitative Life Sciences and Medicine

Please note the McGill Seminar Series in Quantitative Life Sciences and Medicine will be held via Zoom in Winter 2021. The seminars will be held on Tuesdays between 12 and 1pm. 

Zoom Link: https://mcgill.zoom.us/j/91589192037

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.
