About Research Roundtable

We are excited to announce this new Royal College accredited series in the Department of Pediatrics!

This hybrid of former Work-in-Progress and Research Seminars is an informal, interactive forum for researchers, trainees, allied health staff and research staff to share knowledge and exchange ideas. Some sessions will be project-focused, while others will focus on current research issues/topics; all sessions will provide a collaborative learning experience! Research Roundtable sessions are open to all in the Department of Pediatrics and will be held the first and third Tuesday of every month from 8-9 am in 3A14 unless otherwise communicated.

We want to hear from YOU! Interaction and knowledge sharing are key to the spirit of Research Roundtable, so bring your great ideas.

Stay Up-to-Date

Upcoming Research Roundtable sessions will be advertised in the Department Digest, on the Pediatrics website, and on the television in 3A, and postings in high-traffic hospital areas (e.g. near elevators). If you would like to receive Outlook meeting requests that populate the date, time, location, and topic of upcoming Seminars in your calendar, email Lindsay Akrong to be added to our distribution list.
