Join us on Tuesday, May 3rd for a special edition of Disruptors & Dilemmas, featuring alumni and faculty from U of T Engineering, the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, and the University of Toronto Mississauga.

The Future of Vaccine Production: Giving Canadian Biomanufacturing a Shot in the Arm

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed gaps in Canada’s preparedness to address great challenges in the biomanufacturing space, including domestic production of vaccines. Disruptors & Dilemmas asks a panel of multi-disciplinary experts to provide their insights on Canada’s response to COVID-19, and how the fields of chemistry, engineering, and pharmacy are equipped to address future global crises. Through exciting initiatives at the University of Toronto and beyond, our alumni and faculty hold the keys to unlocking the power of Canadian biomanufacturing to ensure that we are a world leader for the next great challenge.

This free virtual speaker panel will be moderated by Claire Kennedy, Co-Chair of the Defy Gravity Campaign and Former Chair of University of Toronto’s Governing Council. Guests will be invited to engage in Q&A with the panelists following the discussion.

Skule Lunch & Learn Presents “Toward Co-Robotic Construction: Visual AI to Ensure Co-Workers’ Safety” @ Virtual via Zoom
Jan 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn

U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series.

Join fellow graduates to learn about exciting research in diverse subjects from U of T Engineering professors.

This month’s speaker will be Professor Daeho Kim (CivMinE)

Imagine walking onto a construction site to find robotics carrying out repetitive and laborious tasks while workers focused on supervising robotic systems and troubleshooting uncertainties, expending far less physical exertion.

With greater development in robotics and automation, the construction industry is gradually gearing up to embrace a range of robotic solutions to break through the sustained suffering from low productivity, poor safety, and the shortage of skilled young labourers. 

However, are these construction companies ready to deploy robots in these dynamic construction sites? Join us on January 11th as Professor Daeho Kim discusses a critical element in realizing co-robotic construction, worker safety, and how his research approach aims to foster a new workforce specialized in robot collaboration with ensured workers’ safety.  

Virtual: A Zoom link will be sent to all guests who registered.
