Awards and Presentations


The 2021 London Health Research Day is being held virtually with some significant changes to the awards and presentations. Please review the Participant Information section for details. More information about prizes for this year's event will be available soon. 

LHRD Collaboration Awards **New

The 2021 London Health Research Day will be offering the LHRD Collaboration Awards. The Awards are open to all learners who participate in the day with a research poster.

The Awards will be given to poster presenters who propose a collaborative research project based on the knowledge and skill sets presented in their online posters.  Posters can be viewed over a two-week period. At the end of that period, we will have a due date for proposals coming from two poster presenters.   A review panel will review the applications and the top proposals will receive $500 for each poster presenter and additional funds that are to be used for research expenses to do the proposed research. 

LHRD Collaboration Award Regulations.

  1. Each proposal must come from two poster presenters at LHRD.  The presenters making the proposal can be graduate students, residents, medical students, or postdocs.  The two poster presenters must be from different programs and must not have collaborated previously.
  2. The short, written proposal must be based on some aspect of the research presented in the poster of the two applicants.  The proposal must explain the synergy between the skill sets of the two applicants.
  3. In addition to $500 awards to each of the successful applicants on the proposal, we will provide funds to carry out the proposed project.  A justified budget is required and should not exceed $1000.  If a budget must be higher than that, a very strong justification will be required.
  4. The academic supervisors of the two applicants will be required to sign off on the proposal and one will have to be responsible for the research funds provided. 
  5. Proposals will be judged on feasibility, originality, and impact.  We are planning on funding multiple projects.  The exact number of proposals funded will depend on the budgets of the individual projects awarded.

Please note the traditional awards offered in past London Health Research Day events, will not be offered for the 2021 event.

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 $400 while second place winners are awarded a cash award in the amount of $200.


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. Up to three judges will evaluate each poster selected for evaluations for criteria including content, appearance, presentation and communication. Prizes will be awarded to the top-scoring posters. Winners will receive a cash award in the amount of $200.
