Chemistry and Biochemistry seminars | Mount Allison

Our seminars are an integral part of the Honours Chemistry and Biochemistry program.

We aim to bring in exciting guest speakers that will expose students to the diversity of chemistry and biochemical research.

Our seminars are 45 minutes long with 5 minutes for questions. Seminars are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (11:30 a.m.-12:20 p.m.) between September and early April, except for the fall and winter term reading weeks.
