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.

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.
