Student Research Day

In early November each year, students of the Summer Research Bursary Program are given the opportunity to showcase their work at Student Research Day. Among peers, faculty members, guests and judges, students present their summer research findings via interactive poster presentations. Although informal, this scientific meeting provides students with a valuable learning experience and faculty members with the chance to support McGill's research leaders of tomorrow.

Following the evaluation of poster presentations, various report and poster awards are announced for the summer term. Report awards for the 2 bursary programs (fall/winter) preceding the summer term are also announced.

Student Research Day 2017 was held on November 17th at New Residence Hall. The event began with a presentation from guest speaker, Dr. Pia Wintermark, Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics: "How to combine clinical and research activities: The clinician-scientist path"
