Graduate Departmental Seminars

The Graduate Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers an exciting seminar program featuring scientists from across Canada and around the world, with occasional seminars by our own faculty and members of other departments at U of T and surrounding hospitals/institutes. The seminars provide an opportunity for all to meet outstanding, world-renowned scientists. Seminar speakers also schedule additional time for informal discussions with faculty and students. Regular attendance at seminars is required of all graduate students.
