Toronto General Hospital Research Institute (TGHRI) is happy to announce that this year’s Research Day will be held on Wednesday October 9th, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Toronto Downtown, 108 Chestnut St, Toronto, ON.
This year’s keynote speaker will be: Dr. Kang Lee, Professor, and Tier 1 CRC Chair in developmental neuroscience at the University of Toronto & a Senior Scientist at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Lee will be presenting “Effective artificial intelligence and its applications in healthcare”.
This event is a celebration of TGHRI achievements in basic and clinical research and it is an opportunity to promote interdepartmental and cross pillar collaborations among researchers. TGHRI Research Day is open to all TGHRI Scientists, Clinician Scientists, trainees and staff. Undergraduate students, MSc students, PhD students, and postdoctoral fellows are invited to submit a first-author abstract of their research, either completed or in progress to the Research Day poster competition. To highlight TGHRI’s many areas of research and to encourage collaboration and discussions between groups, all abstracts submitted will be published in our Research Day booklet. As done last year, the first round of poster judging will take place prior to Research Day. The TGHRI leadership team and TGHRI faculty and staff will grade the abstracts and up to 60 abstracts will be accepted as posters. Those with the highest ranked abstracts will be asked to give a brief presentation of their posters during Research Day, and the winners will be presented with an award.
