July 3, 2020: The Research Day is officially cancelled for 2020 due to the impossibility to hold the event on site before the end of the year. All sponsors will be contacted and reimbursed. We would like to thank Lauren Nagel and Tho-Alfakar Al-Aubodah for their hard work and dedication in preparing this Research Day, it would have been one of the best editions. We are looking forward to seeing you in 2021!
March 13, 2020: Please note that the IDIGH Research Day planned on April 17, 2020 is postponed due to the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus propagation. Our trainee committee was ready to hold the event and we received high quality research abstracts. For this reason, we hope that we will be able to find an arrangement with our sponsors and other people involved to postpone the event instead of cancelling it.
The IDIGH Research Day is a trainee-led initiative hosted at the RI-MUHC that brings an audience of 150 IDIGH scientists, clinicians, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students who work in basic and clinical research in infectious diseases, immunity and global health. The event provides a forum for all IDIGH graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to showcase their most recent research findings in the form of oral and poster presentations that facilitate discussions among our groups.
