Event details:Where: UofT Campus, Myhal AuditoriumWhen: Friday, Feb.22, 2019 (9am-3pm) -- lunch will be provided!What: As a breakout leader, you will facilitate discussions in groups of ~8 high school students (gr.11-12) about the uses of stem cells in research, in the clinic and general stem cell ethics.
We are looking for people that have experience with stem cell research or regenerative medicine as a whole. This year's theme is macular degeneration/retinal stem cells, but don't worry! You don't have to be an expert on it! We will have a short 2-3hr training session prior to our event to go through answer keys (pizza will be provided here!). We will also have ~20min session during our symposium where you will have the chance to talk with students about your project or research experience, and they can ask you questions about what it's like being in graduate school/a researcher.
If you're interested in volunteering your time to talk about passionate gr.11+12 students about the cool stuff you are doing - please sign up! Any questions? Please email me at email@example.com .
