Toronto (Sept. 21, 2009) - Toronto Rehab's 5th Annual Research Day, taking place on Monday, November 2, features a wealth of innovative rehabilitation research. "Toronto Rehab scientists, students, postdoctoral fellows and clinicians are bubbling with ideas for applying rehabilitation science in new and exciting ways," says Dr. Geoff Fernie, Vice President, Research, Toronto Rehab. "They're doing extraordinary things."

As in previous years, presenters at Research Day 2009 face the challenge of conveying the importance of their work in just one minute. Specifically, in the one minute allotted, they are asked to: identify the objective of their research; results so far (or results they hope to achieve); and why their research matters. "The challenge is to do this in an entertaining way but not to let the entertainment get in the way of the message," adds Dr. Fernie.

After the morning one-minute presentations, there will be poster and digital presentations, as well as awards for best presentation and best poster.

Who can present: Toronto Rehab–affiliated students, scientists and staff.

Where and when: Sheraton Centre, Dominion Ballroom, 123 Queen Street West, Toronto, Ontario, 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

Registration: Presenters or attendees, please register online.

Guidelines and Forms:

  • Research Day 2009 Poster and Presentation Guidelines
  • Research Day 2009 Poster/Digital Media Presentation Submission Form - to be completed by individuals who will be submitting a poster or digital media presentation
