Research has always been an integral part of both the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and Lawson Health Research Institute. Each year, both institutions held individual research days to showcase the outstanding work of their students, trainees, clinical fellows, residents and postdoctoral scholars; the Margaret Moffat poster competition at Schulich Medicine & Dentistry, and the Lawson Health Research Day, held at Lawson.

In 2012, Schulich Medicine & Dentistry and Lawson decided to bring their two research showcases together, resulting in more opportunities for collaboration, presentation, and recognition. On Tuesday, March 19, 2012, the inaugural “London Health Research Day” was presented.

The first year saw more than 600 people attend, including 350 students and trainees, and 130 judges. Research presentations spanned 13 different categories, from children’s health and aging to biomedical imaging and surgical innovation. Now in its ninth year, London Health Research Day has seen continual growth with participation from Western University's Faculty of Health Sciences. The event continues to establish itself as the premier research showcase for graduate students, trainees, clinical fellows and postdoctoral scholars.
