Events of Interest to Trainees
POSTER COMPETITION AND TRAINEE ORAL PRESENTATIONS
We strongly encourage all registered students and post-doctoral fellows to submit an abstract. Trainee abstracts will be evaluated by a scientific committee. We anticipate that all trainees who submit an abstract will be invited to present a poster at a judged poster session, with two $500 prizes (sponsored by l'Axe éthique et intégrité en santé des populations from the Réseau de recherché en santé des populations du Québec) for the highest quality posters. If an abstract requires revision to meet the scientific standards of the meeting, the submitter will be contacted and given an opportunity to revise and resubmit. A small number of trainee abstracts will also be selected for platform presentations in the plenary sessions.
Deadline for student abstract submission is March 16, 2015. Notification of selection for poster or platform presentation will be sent by email by April 1, 2015.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
This session explores some surprising opportunities and challenges that may arise following graduate training in genomics, GE3LS or HSPR. Since not all academic roads lead to research in the lab or to a university position, four leading scientists/scholars working in various spheres are invited to share their atypical, yet inspiring, stories of career development and discuss how they structured their career paths based on personal interests and competencies to become leaders in their fields (e.g. research funding, health policy, biotech industries). The session is offered concurrently to the attendees of both the Canadian Human and Statistical Genetics (CHSG) Meeting and the Canadian GE3LS and Health Services & Policy Research Conference.
