TR Talks

How to Translate Research to Innovation in Health
Join the Conversation

As part of the graduate seminar, MSC 1000: Fundamentals of Translational Research, the discussion series is hosted by Faculty of Medicine’s Translational Research Program (TRP) and the five collaborating Faculty of Medicine Departments participating in the development of the Toronto Translational HUB (Department of Psychiatry, Medicine, Medical Imaging, Surgery, and Paediatrics).

Geared to an inter-professional community of clinicians, researchers, and trainees, the series is intended to provoke discussion and community building. The Talks, are intended to provide an overview of the health innovation landscape while introducing the ‘tools and competencies’ needed to systematically ‘translate’ science more effectively.

Each seminar in the series is two hours. During the first hour, TRP first-year students will facilitate a discussion among all the panel discussants and audience about Translational challenges and opportunities. During the second hour, each of the discussants will meet in smaller groups with attendees to continue the conversation and network.

We will launch the discussion series on Sept 18th at Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning, SickKids Research Tower, 686 Bay St.

Thereafter, the remaining talks will be held at the Auditorium, Room 102 at 263 McCaul Street.

Registration Required
Registration is required as space is limited to accommodate the diverse audience from each collaborating department and partners.
