The International Speaker Seminar Series (ISSS) and group discussions are free and OPEN TO ALL.

Seminars are broadcast to research centers interested in participating online.

Unless otherwise indicated, seminars and group discussions will be held from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST on the first Friday of every month.

With this series, and in the context of genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics research, STAGE aims to:

  • expose trainees to high-caliber international research
  • further interdisciplinary research innovation, discovery, and learning
  • foster a cohesive research community of genetic epidemiologists and statistical geneticists in Canada
  • promote rigorous and relevant research in this field
  • enable new networks of collaborative research
