OBI Public Talks 2023-24

Join us for three talks exploring Brain Health Basics

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

Join our OBI Public Talk Series: Brain Health Basics
