OBI Public Talks 2020-21


At OBI, knowledge translation is one of the key steps in bringing science and innovation to the community.

We are always looking for ways to move lab experiments, clinical trials, and treatments beyond academic forums, and one such way is to speak directly to the public and engage them in the exciting advances that are happening in brain health.
