Brain Health Research Day

The Brain Health Research Day brings together the broad research community of the University of Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute (uOBMRI). The day features a keynote address from a world-renowned leader in brain health, speakers from our various partners, trainee posters presentations, as well as highlights and updates from the uOBMRI.

Brain Health Research Day is one step in bringing together researchers, clinicians and students with a shared goal to create one of the world's top centres for neuroscience and the treatment of brain disorders.

About the Day

Since 2009 we have hosted an annual Brain Health Research Day to bring together our research community.  

The day includes dynamic speakers including an external world-renowned keynote speaker, as well as short presentations by our clinicians and researchers to describe the broad research in brain health being done at University of Ottawa and our partner institutions.  

Trainees are highlighted during the day through giving them an opportunity to give an oral presentation, display their research at the poster session, be a poster judge, and have their scientific images displayed at our event.    

We are pleased to announce that the next BHRD will take place a Roger Guindon Hall on Thursday, May 14, 2020.
