Connect with collaborators

The WCMR is here to help members connect with other members and with networks outside of the University of Waterloo. Contact us with your questions!

Members of the WCMR are welcome and encouraged to form WCMR Groups among themselves with research interests in a specific topic area.

The WCMR is a sponsor of the Environmental Microbiology Journal Club, organized by Prof. Laura Hug. Topics of interest include microbial ecology, environmental microbiology, metagenomics, and emerging microbiology trends. Contact Laura to join the mailing list, and look at the calendar of events for upcoming events.
