The CDTRP is pleased to host its discussion-based meeting series called “Research Connect”. This series streamlines the subset of Theme, Hub, and Working Group meetings that aims to share and discuss the latest research findings across the network and our Webinar series, which featured national and international speakers.
The goal is to make it easy for our members to know about and attend high quality presentations across all Themes and topics of interest. We are aiming for active discussions including researchers, trainees, and patient, family, and donor partners, engaging the whole community as if we were having a family dinner rather than listening to a formal presentation.
Thanks to AstraZeneca for sponsoring the CDTRP Research Connect Series!

The CDTRP Research Connect Series is supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

 If you would like to present your work or have a speaker suggestion, please contact Research Theme Coordinator Erika Kaethe Croft at
