Café Scientifique is where you can learn about the latest ideas and issues in science and technology in an informal setting. It’s not a lecture! It’s a place for group discussion and audience involvement is the most important ingredient.  

The discussion will focus on the health risks of plasticizers and brominated flame retardants and the concerns they raise based on two multidisciplinary research projects supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). The event is open to the public and no previous scientific knowledge is required to participate.

Presentations will be in English and in French. Moderator: Jacquie Rourke, journalist and video producer.
