Department of Psychiatry Seed Funding Competition

The primary intent of this competition is to support research by trainees (including residents, graduate students, and fellows) and junior faculty members.  However, given on-going funding challenges in health research, we are also open to providing research funding support for mid- and senior-level researchers.  All members of Western University’s Department of Psychiatry are welcome to apply to this competition.  Applications should clearly present study methodology, whether of a quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods approach.

To access the application, please click here.

The deadline for submissions is February 2, 2018.

For more information, please contact Lindsay Cecile.

Annual Developmental Disabilities Academic Research Day

On behalf of Dr. Julio Martinez and Dr. Rob Nicolson, we are pleased to invite you to submit a research abstract for presentation at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry Developmental Disabilities Academic Research Day, to take place on Thursday, May 3 at the Great Hall at Western University.

Trainees and junior faculty members will be given priority for presentations.  Although we will try to accommodate speaker preferences, given space limitations, presentation format will ultimately be determined by the Organizing Committee. 

Abstracts should be double spaced, and be a maximum of 250 words.  They should be typed in a minimum of 12-point font, preferably in Microsoft Word and submitted electronically to Sarah O’Flanagan.

Abstracts should clearly summarize Study Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusions.  We will consider submissions for studies currently in progress, with preference given to completed projects.  Please acknowledge sources of funding, as appropriate.

The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2018.
