Distinguished Lecture Series 2017-2018

We continue to focus on giving graduate students the opportunity to learn about and practice science communication. We believe this key skill is necessary for any practicing scientist to master and may not have received the attention it deserves in the standard doctoral education of students.

Toronto Public LibraryThis year we are partnering with the Toronto Public Library (TPL) to give graduate students the opportunity to present their research before an even more general audience. Each lecture is at a different branch so read the posters carefully for date, time, and branch location.
