LMP1001: Graduate Seminars in Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology
Covering the Graduate Seminars in Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, including:
- LMP1001Y Graduate Seminars in Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology
- LMP1001H Student seminar series I
- LMP1002H Student seminar series II
- LMP1003H Student seminar series III
Adminstrative support and submission of abstracts
You will be allocated to one of the groups, based on either:
- your stated preferences or
- the preference of your supervisors.
The five groups are based on general themes.
We will have 7 weeks of seminars in the Fall Term and 9 weeks of seminars in the Winter/Spring Term (16 weeks total).
You must attend a total of eight weeks of these student seminars throughout the year. Four of those weeks must be from within your own allocated group.
You must attend 50% of our Faculty Seminars (also known as the Monday Seminar series). You are required to attend 50% during the Fall Term and 50% during the Winter/Spring Term.
Details of the Faculty Seminars are sent by email and are available in the LMP events calendar.
You may attend any additional seminars of interest.
- MSc students must attend in their first two years of study
- PhD students must attend in their first four years of study.
|Group||weeks of seminars over the year|
|Group 1: Brain and Neuroscience||8 weeks|
|Group 2: Cancer, Development and Aging||9 weeks|
|Group 3: Cardiovascular, Physiology and Metabolism/ Molecular and Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine||7 weeks|
|Group 4: Infectious Diseases, Inflammation and Immunology||8 weeks|
Format of the group seminars
Each week, two of the groups will hold seminars at the same time in different rooms or Zoom link.
Typically, two students in each group will present in each session.
The sessions will rotate between the five groups in a regular pattern.
This is a pass/fail course. To achieve a 'pass' (100% attendance), you must attend at least eight seminars.
Each seminar will be moderated by two faculty. These professors will provide feedback/evaluation of both presentations at the end of each session.
It is expected that your PIs/supervisors will also be present when you are presenting. Other Faculty are, of course, strongly encouraged to attend regularly.
You must submit the title and abstract (~250 words) for your seminar to email@example.com by Monday at 10:00 am the week before your presentation.
