Toronto Rehabilitation Institute's Research Day

2016 Technovation Award

Joe Lane, Director of CAT and Danny Cen, 2016 Technovation Award winner.

TRI Research Day is an opportunity for all members of our research community to come together to present their research to colleagues, decision-makers and the public. Again this year, “Minute Madness” oral presentations will challenge presenters to convey the importance of their work in just one minute. The day will also include short talks, poster presentations and interactive displays.  Research Day celebrates student achievement with awards presented for Team Excellence, Best Paper, Best Poster, Best Interactive Display, and Best Minute Madness Presentation (People’s Choice Award).
