AllerGen Trainee Symposium
The 12th and Final AllerGen Trainee Symposium took place
May 2-4, 2018, in the Fort Garry Hotel, Winnipeg, MB
From 2006 through to 2018, this annual symposium provided a unique, value-added professional development opportunity for HQP to complement their academic and scientific training. The events fostered networking and collaboration among trainees and young professionals with a shared interest in allergy and asthma research and/or clinical practice.

The 2019 AllerGen Poster Competition will take place during the 2019 AllerGen Research Conference to be held at the Marriott Downtown Toronto Eaton Centre Hotel in Toronto, ON, January 27-30, 2019.
The Poster Competition is open to AllerGen-funded trainees and members of the AllerGen Students and New Professionals Network (ASNPN) who are interested in presenting research findings related to AllerGen’s mission and mandate. Abstracts that present results with potential for clinical application, or for knowledge mobilization aimed at patient education, policy innovation and/or commercial application of research results, are strongly encouraged.
This competition includes both a Research Category and a Knowledge Translation (KT) Category. The KT Category will feature posters that present research findings in a manner that is understandable and captivating to a non-scientific audience and the use of information visualizations such as infographics is encouraged.
“The Trainee Poster Competition was a unique experience where I had the opportunity to present my research findings to both clinical and basic science researchers. I received very useful advice that I can take back and apply to my research.”
