In-person workshops add-on for Summer 2022

Students must be enrolled in the respective module before enrolling in a workshop for that module. Workshops consist of lab experiments that will take place at the University of Toronto St. George Campus.

The in-person workshops will be similar in theme to the virtual labs with the exception that they are happening on campus and students will handle chemicals/equipment.

All labs will take place at Medical Sciences Building, 1 King's College Circle, M5S 1A8, Toronto, Ontario. All in-person workshops will operate under the University of Toronto's COVID-19 guidelines which follow local and provincial public health regulations. Requirements will be updated in accordance with public health measures and communicated to all participants ahead of the program.

The lab may change based on COVID19 guidelines and resource availability.

Space is limited and students can enroll in multiple workshops.
