Who we are:
Apollo Society is an exciting international collaborative project between the EUREKA Institute and its partner universities with the aim of helping medical students develop the skills, knowledge, and experience that will support a career in the field of translational medicine. Created by medical students at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, Apollo is expanding to become a global network of medical students, physicians, and scientists dedicated to bridging basic science, public health, and clinical practice. Apollo Toronto is the second Apollo chapter, established in June 2015. We hold monthly meetings using creative formats to critically evaluate, debate, and discuss current, real-world topics and trends in medicine. We also host open events each year bringing translational medicine to the medical student body at large.
