The Krembil Research Institute (Krembil) Seminar Series is designed to raise awareness of scientific research conducted both inside and outside of Krembil. The series is generally held on the first, second and third Friday of each month in the Main Auditorium (WW2-401) of the Toronto Western Hospital.

Each month, the Seminar Series will host:

  • 1 External Visiting Speaker
  • 1 Internal Krembil Researcher
  • 1 Internal Krembil Post-doctoral Fellow or Senior Graduate Student
