About our Research Day

Clinical Fellows, Postdoctoral Fellows & Graduate Students
Members of the MUHC Respiratory Division and RI-MUHC Respiratory Program
The aim of this research day is to provide a forum for the presentation of clinical, basic, and translational research by clinical and postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. A prize will be awarded to the best presentation. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed and selected for either an oral or a poster pitch presentation. 
All clinical fellows are welcome to present. Second year fellows are expected to present their results from their 6 months of research experience. New trainees are encouraged to present their research project proposals.

Instructions for Presenters

Oral Presentations:
Each presenter will have 15 minutes for their powerpoint presentation. Plan for ~10 minutes for your presentation which should cover an intro, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions. Leave ~5 minutes for questions. Please send your presentation to Inga by May 16th 12pm. A merged file will be created for our multimedia technician. Note: all orals will be judged together – so remember to make your presentation ACCESSIBLE TO A BROAD AUDIENCE and AVOID JARGON. Explain all clinical terms (fellows: remember to explain diseases and clinical procedures). Explain all scientific methods (basic trainees: not everyone does flow cytometry, so remember to describe your experiments and methods clearly). Your talks will be judged by PIs from a wide range of backgrounds.

Poster Presentations:
Poster boards will be available for the two poster presentations. During the poster session, each presenter will have ~8 minutes to present their poster, followed by a Q&A period. PRACTICE THIS PITCH! The goal is not to read the poster, but to use this time to introduce yourself, your research, and your major outcomes in a succinct and clear manner. Once again, remember to make your presentation ACCESSIBLE TO A BROAD AUDIENCE and AVOID JARGON.
The available poster board dimensions are 45 x 45 inches. If your poster is larger than this, please indicate this in your abstract submission.
