The Graduate Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers exciting seminars 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. These 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.
