Community Tools: Bioethics Seminar Series

The JCB offers a weekly seminar on a wide variety of bioethics topics. The speakers come from the local, national and international community in bioethics. These seminars are open to the public and free. Registration is recommended to receive the seminar link.

 

The JCB Bioethics Seminar Series takes place almost every Wednesday (September to April) from 4:00-5:00 pm. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the 2020-21 season will take place entirely online in the Fall term and we will re-evaluate this for the Winter term in accordance with U of T guidelines, unless otherwise noted. Please check the schedule to confirm the details.

 

It will be broadcast live each week using Zoom. To register for upcoming seminars please visit our events page on Eventbrite. The link to that week's seminar will be emailed out to registered participants on the day of the seminar.

 

This schedule is subject to change. If you are interested in hearing a particular speaker or topic, we suggest you consult this schedule again the week of the seminar.
