U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series.
Did you know that the Drinking Water Research Group (DWRG) at the University of Toronto has received funding from Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), as well as the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to investigate microplastics in Canadian drinking water? Efforts by the DWRG over the past three years have led to the development and subsequent refinement of advanced microplastic sampling and analysis techniques, allowing us to focus on the different health impact related issues.
But what exactly are Microplastics and why are they referred to as a “triple threat”?

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.
Discover U of T Engineering at this year’s Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF)!
