Program | Event report

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.


AllerGen Poster Competition

The final 2019 Competition was held in conjunction with AllerGen’s 2019 Research Conference (January 27-30, 2019, in Toronto, Ontario)

AllerGen’s annual Trainee Poster Competition placed the Network’s student research “front and centre,” offering trainees the opportunity to showcase their work and receive feedback from leading clinicians and scientists. Between 2005 and 2019, more than 400 trainee posters were presented and adjudicated.

“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.”
