With its modern architecture, natural lighting, and state-of-the-art technology, the Life Sciences Centre is the perfect setting for your event. We can accommodate groups of 10 to 1000 for events ranging from seminars, to poster sessions, to week-long conferences. The LSI will work with you to find the perfect location for your event.
Our 128 person Lecture Theatre (LSC3) is fully equipped for multimedia presentations and is just steps away from our Atriums, perfect for a post-presentation reception or poster session.
Looking to promote your latest scientific product? Our seminar rooms are a popular setting for product demos, info sessions and product-centric seminars.
Coordinate with us and our Gross Anatomy Lab to host your cadaver-based training session.
