CDTRP 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting – Trainee Sessions Highlight

Join the next generation of donation and transplantation researchers as CDTRP trainees, and other graduate students across Canada present their research as a Three Minute Thesis (3MT). 3MTs allow students to foster effective presentation and communication skills as they explain their work in 3 minutes and 3 slides.

These interactive sessions will be held on December 7 and 8 and are open to in-person and virtual attendees. The 27 presentations are aligned with CDTRP’s Research Themes and cross-cutting priorities.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask each presenter questions and evaluate each presentation in real time! CDTRP will present three awards: the top in-person presenter during each session, and the top virtual presenter from either session.

The top presentations, selected by the CDTRP members in the audience, will be awarded a $250 prize.
