Memorial University's vice-president (research) will deliver the 2019 Canada Ocean Lecture Series.

In Dr. Neil Bose’s lecture, On the Edge: Positioned in One of the Richest Ocean Ecosystems on Earth, you will learn how Memorial’s physical location inspires its researchers to lead critical marine and ocean-related research.
