SciChat is an outreach initiative run by graduate students from the Department of Immunology at the University of Toronto. Our goal is to make science accessible to the community through public lectures and seminars delivered at libraries and community centres. We are focused on topics related to the health sciences and the immune system (such as vaccination, the Hygiene Hypothesis, cancer, HIV, etc), and seek to clear up misconceptions that may be perpetrated in the media. We feel that, as graduate students, it is our duty to hold open discussions with the public on groundbreaking research topics and issues as it is the public, through their tax contributions and donations, that make our research possible.
