Due to the escalating health concerns relating to COVID-19, the McMaster University Ontario Biology Day (OBD) Local Organizing Committee, has made the decision to cancel OBD 2020 (originally scheduled to take place on March 21-22, 2020)
On the weekend of March 23rd &24th, 2019, Western University was the host of the 32nd annual Ontario Biology Day student conference. The fantastic Ontario biology community gathered at Western University's London campus.
Ontario Biology Day provides a fantastic opportunity for biology students to share and showcase their research. As student approaching the completion of their undergraduate careers, Ontario Biology Day serves as a venue to make connections, engage with other researchers, inspire others and to be inspired by current research. Ontario Biology Day is about providing a welcoming environment for students to share their passion and accomplishments.
The participating students had the opportunity to hear lectures by Dr. Brock Fenton, a distinguished academic and long time member of the Western biology family, and Dr. Bonnie Schmidt, a program alumnus and Founding President of Let's Talk Science. Also, the Ontario Biology Day 2019 Banquet provided an incredible networking opportunity, while enjoying great food, drinks and live entertainment.
