Research Day scheduled for May 1, 2019

Lassonde will be hosting the second annual Lassonde Research Day on Wednesday, May 1, 2019

When: 8.00am – 3.30pm
Where: Convention Centre – Second Student Centre
 
This is an opportunity to showcase your research with the goal of increasing the number of industry partnerships at Lassonde. There will be chances to engage with industry, community partners, NSERC, MITACS, and OCE.  We are also seeking your input on current and potential partners that you would like invited, so that we can truly extend the reach of the great research done at Lassonde. Here is an example of last year's program. 

If your team would like to participate in the poster sessions, please complete this registration form by no later than April 1, 2019.
 
Lassonde Research Day takes the form of a mini-conference. It will involve morning and afternoon poster sessions in addition to (optional) lab tours.
 
There is space for one poster board per PI and their team. Each poster board is 5 feet wide x 4 feet tall, and can accommodate one large poster, or multiple smaller posters. If you would like to request additional poster boards or materials, please do so on the registration form.
 
Your graduate students are also welcome to present their work during the poster sessions. We encourage you to strive for diverse and inclusive representation in your selection of presenters. It is the responsibility of the PI to complete the registration form and indicate which students will be participating.
 
We will also be recruiting volunteers to help organize the day. If you have any graduate students who are interested in volunteering, please sign them up when registering or direct them to Melissa Abraham.
 
To register, please complete the registration form, found here. We will need a title and abstract for your research, as well as a list of presenters.
 
We look forward to promoting the diverse research from across the School at Lassonde Research Day!

Last year, Lassonde hosted its first-ever Research Day with 46 posters and nearly 200 visitors. We have seen a number of partnership grants that have originated from that day.
