Showcasing the next generation of child health researchers

Fostering an environment of learning and mentorship is an integral part of Child Health Research Days. The abstract competition is a wonderful opportunity for trainees to share their research and build important connections within our community. 

About the competition

Each year, we are proud to host an abstract competition within Child Health Research Days. This competition is an opportunity for CHRIM trainees, residents, and technicians to showcase their science, build community connections, and learn vital skills to further their careers in child health research.

We accept abstracts from Manitoba investigators at any career stage who are conducting research focused on pediatric health and disease. Read more about the abstract competition below, and how you can participate. 

Please note: the deadline to submit an abstract is now past and we are no longer accepting submissions. Thanks to all who submitted – we are looking forward to hearing more about your research projects at CHRD 2023!
