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 in each category. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed and selected for either an oral or a poster 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.

Oral Presentations: Each presenter will have ~15 minutes (to be confirmed) for their powerpoint presentation. Plan for ~10 minutes for your presentation which should cover an intro, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions. Leave ~ 3-5 minutes for questions. Please come with your presentation on USB. 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 pitch: The posters will be grouped into separate categories. During the poster session, each trainee will have 2 minutes to “pitch” their poster. Use this pitch to introduce yourself, your research, and your major outcomes in a succinct and clear manner. Each trainee will then have up to 5 minutes to answer questions and provide additional details. All posters are judged by your peers in your poster category. In essence, all trainees within a group will move from poster to poster together and take turns presenting and evaluating the poster. Once again, 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 immediately.
