Feature Platform Presentations

London Health Research Day recognizes research excellence in graduate students, trainees, clinical fellows and postdoctoral scholars. Participants with the top ranked abstracts are invited to provide an oral presentation at the LHRD event.

Platform presentation awards are given to first and second place presenters in each seminar room. Presentations are evaluated by a panel of three judges for criteria including content, interpretation and response to research questions, and presentation mechanics. First place winners are awarded a cash award in the amount of $650 while second place winners are awarded a cash award in the amount of $600.

 

Poster Presentations 

Based on scores from the written abstracts, up to 400 participants are invited to provide a poster presentation at London Health Research Day, during either the morning or afternoon session. Presenters are expected to give a 2-3 minute overview of their research and answer questions posed to them by visitors to their posters. Visitors are encouraged to provide feedback on both the prepared poster and presentation. 

Following selection of feature platform presentations (40 abstracts), the next strongest abstracts (no more than 150) will be selected  to give an evaluated poster presentation. Each poster selected will be evaluated by two judges for criteria including content, appearance and presentation. Prizes will be awarded to the top-scoring posters in each research category. Winners will receive a cash award in the amount of $250.
