Erindale Biology Society (UTMebs)
The Erindale Biology Society is a student-led academic society where the field of Biology is not only explored, but also developed. We aim to provide various services, networking opportunities, and resources to engage UTM students with UTM Biology faculty members, tri-campus graduate students, and other undergraduate students. Our aim is to support students through their undergraduate career, with a focus on career exploration and research opportunities events including our Annual Meet the Professor Night, Meet the Graduate Night, Meet the ROP Night Healthcare Forum, UTM Undergraduate Research Symposium, and most recently, our multi-event Meet the Labs Series. Through these events, we aim to expand UTM students' professional network and connect them with both on-campus and off-campus opportunities.
At the UTM campus, we extensively collaborate with the Department of Biology, UTM Student Union, Erindale Chemical & Physical Sciences Society, Undergraduate Paleontology Club, and the UTM Career Centre. In addition, our off-campus partners include Community of Support at the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, Trillium Health Partners, and the Interprofessional Healthcare Students' Association.

The Erindale Biology Society (EBS), in collaboration with Canadian Undergraduate Students' Voices in Education & Research (CUSVER) and the Department of Biology, are hosting the first 3-Minute Thesis Competition (3MT) at UTM. For the first time, UTM Biology students will get the opportunity to present their completed or uncompleted research in a short, yet interactive 3-minute presentation where they will be judged by a team of the UTM Biology faculty members. This is an excellent opportunity for students to develop their science communication and public speaking skills, which are critical for a career in research. The top 3 winners will be selected by the judging committee and will receive $450, $250, and $150 along with a signed certificate from the UTM Biology Department in recognition of their effort and success.
The event will take place virtually over Zoom on March 26th at 5:00 pm-8:00 pm. If you are interested in this opportunity, please refer to the eligibility criteria document posted on the EBS and CUSVER Instagram bios. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can proceed to fill out the application form linked in the same bio. The application deadline is March 22nd, 2021. After your submission, you will receive instructions to submit your 1-slide along with a $5 registration fee by March 24th, 2021.
