Lunchtime Seminar Series

What is BiophysTO?

BiophysTO is an attempt to bring together the Toronto Biophysics community and promote scientific interactions and potential collaborations among scientists, across departments and campuses, with the focus on the quantitative characterization of biological molecules, processes, and systems.The talks are meant to attract a wide audience of students and PIs with diverse backgrounds and will feature local as well as national and international speakers.

The talks will be held twice a month on Thursdays between 12 – 1 pm in either the McLennan Physical Laboratories room 606 (at the St. George campus) or in the Davis Building room 3129 (at UTM). They will be streamed online between the two campuses through a video conferencing setup. All are welcome.
