Research in the City Public Lecture Series

The Research in the City public lecture series provides an opportunity for the community to come out and hear what some of our fine minds are doing in science, engineering, health sciences, social sciences, humanities and business.


Whether they're sequencing the genome of the the woolly mammoth or designing a free-spirited hitchhiking robot, McMaster researchers are doing some fascinating work.

They'll be sharing their research stories with you with the launch of Research in the City,  a series of lectures offered to the general public to inform, educate, raise awareness and energize our community to the research that's taking place right here in Hamilton.

The lecture series is a partnership between McMaster University and The Hamilton Spectator, organized by the Office of the Vice-President, Research. 

The lectures will take place at various locations, including the David Braley Health Sciences Centre,(100 Main Street West, Hamilton) the McMaster Innovation Park, (150 Longwood Rd. S.) and the Hamilton Spectator Auditorium (44 Frid Street).  All lectures will take place at 7:00 p.m., they're free and all are welcome.
