Krembil Seminar Series

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 selected Thursdays of each month from September to June in the BMO Education Centre on the main floor of the Krembil Discovery Tower, 60 Leonard Ave.

Each month, we strive to host:

  • 1 External Visiting Speaker
  • 1 Internal Krembil Researcher
  • 1 Internal Krembil Postdoctoral Researcher or Senior Graduate Student
