Groundbreaking, collaborative, and internationally acclaimed research takes place right here, in the Maritimes. On May 31, at an Open Dialogue event during Dal Alumni Days, four world-class researchers at Dalhousie will tell us how they are making great strides in research that is impacting health and the economy. Presented in lecture-style (with lots of time for Q&As) learn how they are developing cancer-killing viruses and tumour-shrinking glass, how we are just one step closer to unlocking the key to curing Alzheimer’s disease, and how an innovative new program is empowering children and youth as change agents for the health and wellbeing of themselves, their families and communities.

This is a free event.
