Call for Nominations: Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF) – Deadline: March 31, 2021

Call for Nominations: Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF)

The aim of the CSHRF is to provide a venue for the networking, research exposure and recognition of Canada’s most promising research trainees in the health sciences. Note: Due to COVID-19, the CSHRF will be presented virtually this year from June 14 to 18, 2021.  As such, there will be no travel award funding offered this year, but attendees will receive free registration for the event. Graduate programs are invited to nominate their top PhD students in health sciences for participation in the forum

The forum will feature a judged oral (research poster) presentation, awards of excellence, and opportunities for students to network virtually with other participants in their research area.  A notable highlight will be the participation of Gairdner laureates, both as symposium speakers and for small group mentorship interactions with student participants. Another highlight is the very popular Career Development Workshop.

UBC departments are invited to nominate their top PhD students to participate virtually in the conference (present their research via poster presentation). Selected conference participants will be invited to provide a short video presenting their poster; a winner will be selected and announced during the conference.

Graduate Program Nomination Deadline: 31 March 2021
