Events and Conferences


London Health Sciences Centre

London Health Research Day

London Health Research Day (LHRD) is an opportunity to share your research, engage in scientific discussion and learn from your peers and leaders. The event highlights London’s health research community through hundreds of presentations by graduate trainees, clinical fellows and postdoctoral scholars. The event will take place virtually on in late May annually.  

The call for abstract submissions is OPEN

Only one submission per person is permitted. There will be no submitted abstracts this year, just an intention to submit for a virtual booth. You must give your presentation a title and also provide a description. Your abstract details may be uploaded directly to your virtual presentation centre. More information coming soon.

Research must be conducted predominantly at Lawson, Schulich Medicine & Dentistry or Faculty of Health Sciences.
Trainees/scholars may be the first author on only one abstract.
Presentations must reflect the submitted abstract.
New this year, our event is entirely virtual. We will allow an opportunity for all eligible students or research staff to present their research. Also new this year, we no longer require the abstract format to be uniform.

Deadline to submit is late April annually.
