Summer Student Seminar Series

Students presenting at a seminar*Please note that due to the unforeseen impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department has suspended the hiring of MBP Summer Students until further notice, in accordance with U of T directives.

If you are a student who has been offered a summer position in a lab, please communicate with your hiring faculty member for next steps. If you are an applicant to the MBP Summer Student program and you have not interviewed and/or have not been offered a position by a faculty member, the Department will be halting the application review process moving forward.

Summer Student applications are now closed and we will not be accepting any new applications to the Summer Student Program at this time.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
