wise MotM series:
Approximately once a month, we host an open luncheon and invite one of our amazing WISE Mentors to speak to attendees about various aspects of their lives. Each month focuses on a new topic and the intimate setting makes for some great conversations with the Mentor!
Check out our upcoming Mentor of the Month as well as previous ones!
join us for December's Mentor of the Month :
Dr. Leyla Soleymani
Dr. Leyla Soleymani is an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Miniaturized Biomedical Devices in the Department of Engineering Physics, with research interests in the areas of biosensing and nanofabrication. It’s no doubt that COVID-19 has impacted her research like the rest of us, but she’s here to tell us about how her research has, in fact, been enriched by pivoting her work to focus on solving COVID-19 related problems. Dr. Soleymani and her team are recent grand prize winners of the 2020 Create the Future design contest for their innovative creation of RepelWrap, a plastic wrap that repels bacteria and viruses. Join us on December 15th at 11am to hear more about her experience in health and bio-innovation throughout COVID-19!
All members of the McMaster community are welcome, we look forward to seeing your virtual faces! 💻
