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(s). 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 even if data is limited.

Keynote Lecture

Dr. Esra Tasali, University of Chicago
Title: “Sleep and Energy Metabolism Research Highlights

Instructions for Presenters

Detailed instructions for Oral and Poster Pitch Presenters are below. Please note that we may modify the length or the oral and poster presentations based on the number of submissions to the event.

Oral Presentations:
Each presenter will have 13 minutes for their powerpoint presentation. Plan for ~10-11 minutes for your presentation which should cover an intro, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions. Leave ~2-3 minutes for questions. 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:
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. Remember to make your presentation ACCESSIBLE TO A BROAD AUDIENCE and AVOID JARGON.
Maximum recommended poster size is 45" wide x 45" high. If your poster is already printed with larger dimensions, please let us know. We have a limited number of poster boards and cannot accommodate many oversized posters.
