Toronto General Hospital Research Institute (TGHRI) is excited to announce its annual Research Day, to be held in person on Wednesday, October 30, 2024. This year’s theme will be Cardiovascular Research.

This event is a celebration of TGHRI achievements in basic and clinical research and is an opportunity to promote interdepartmental collaborations among researchers. TGHRI Research Day is open to all TGHRI Scientists, Clinician Scientists, trainees and staff. In addition to the keynote presentation and presentations by TGHRI Scientists featuring their ongoing research, participants will learn about the ongoing research at TGHRI through trainee poster presentations. As in previous years, the first round of poster judging will take place prior to Research Day. TGHRI faculty and leadership team will grade the posters and audio presentations online. The highest ranked presentations will be asked to give a 1-min flash presentation of their work during Research Day, and the winners will be presented with an award. Posters and audio presentations will be available for online viewing starting October 14. Please see the agenda tab for details regarding the in-person poster presentation schedule.
