What is OQUIC?
OQUIC is a cross-provincial, 2-day symposium of undergraduate immunology research. Students throughout Ontario and Québec are hosted at the University of Toronto and allowed to present their research findings through a competitive oral presentation. In addition to students from the University of Toronto, former OQUIC participants include students of Western University, McGill University, Waterloo University, Queen’s University, McMaster University, and Université de Montréal.
OQUIC is completely free of charge for attendees and participants from outside of Toronto may be eligible for additional awards to cover their travel and lodgings. OQUIC’s 2-day schedule includes competitive presentations, keynote presentations from world-class immunology researchers, networking opportunities, and social mixers.
