Register Today! IIDR Trainee Day 2020

November 11-13th, 2020

We are pleased to announce that online registration for the 10th Annual IIDR Trainee Day has officially opened! Due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the research day has been moved to an online format. We have organized the conference to include talks and poster presentations through Zoom and iPosterSessions, respectively. In this way, we hope to enable researchers across different disciplines, locations and programs to share their exciting work. Please register through the IIDR Trainee Day website by August 28th for oral presentations. Registration for poster sessions will be available until September 18th.

This year’s event will take place from November 11th to 13th, 2020. The purpose of this popular multi-day event is to highlight the exceptional work in the IIDR and to give our undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, technicians and clinicians, the opportunity to present their research and network with researchers and peers.

We are excited to be hosting Dr. Volker Gerdts as this year’s Keynote speaker, Director and CEO of VIDO-Intervac, an international vaccine centre out of the University of Saskatchewan that is working hard to develop a vaccine against SARS-CoV2. In addition, multiple awards will be presented for best oral and poster presentations.
