REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED

Join us on Monday, Nov. 5, 2018, for Regenerative Medicine Expo, a free, one-day workshop that will bring together motivated students in Grades 10 to 12 to learn about regenerative medicine and explore leading-edge research in the field at the University of Toronto (U of T) and its affiliated hospitals.

The expo, co-hosted by the University of Toronto’s Medicine by Design initiative and University of Toronto Schools, is a crash course in stem cells and regenerative medicine, offered by leading U of T scientists, engineers and doctors. We will also explore how novel regenerative medicine discoveries become new treatments for a range of diseases, and discuss the importance of scientific literacy in a media-filled world. Following a lively debate on gene editing, students will browse a variety of interactive booths showcasing regenerative medicine research at the University of Toronto, with opportunities throughout the day to explore career paths, meet graduate student researchers, and interact with scientists, clinicians and biotechnology experts. A dynamic, experiential learning event for students, Regenerative Medicine Expo will also provide a rich professional learning opportunity for teachers, with content aligning with the Academic, Applied, College, and University Preparation streams of the Ontario science curriculum.
