Research Day

 

CBR Research Day takes place annually to celebrate the end of the CBR Summer Studentship Program, where undergraduate students undertake a summer project in a clinic or a lab under the supervision of one of the CBR PIs or postdoctoral fellows. All program participants are required to present their summer work with a PowerPoint and a poster presentation. This day is an amazing training opportunity for undergraduate students involved in CBR research to practice their presentation skills and for CBR trainees to learn about the work being done in CBR labs.

All are welcome to attend this event.  Admission is free; donations to the CBR are gratefully accepted.  You can support the future of the CBR Research Day and ongoing Summer Studentship Program by clicking the button below.
