The Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Biology is an institutional collaboration of the Biology Departments at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. OCIB members have significant expertise in fish physiology, botany, entomology, computational biology, and toxicology. The OCIB facilitates interdisciplinary research collaboration between the two universities and external partners.
Each spring the graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, staff and guest speakers gather for the Annual OCIB Symposium. This year, the 10th Annual OCIB Symposium will be held at Carleton University May 2-3, 2013. We are excited to announce this years theme as "bridging the gap." This year’s theme intends to address topics such as bridging the gap between biology and other areas of study, as well as between scientific research and the community through the use of media.
