After lunch, our graduate students took up the challenge of presenting their research in two minutes or less and enticing the audience to visit the posters. All participants were able to vote for their top 3 oral presentations. Brendan Dougherty, a PhD student in Population medicine took first prize; Genevieve Lumsden, an MSc student in Pathobiology was runner up and MSc student Nic Durish from the School of Computer Science was the third place winner.
This event brings together individuals with an interest in one or many pillars of public health and zoonotic disease. As a one day event, the symposium is a full day of presentations and posters on new research, emerging diseases, technology developments and more. Topics range from antimicrobial resistance, One Health, and northern health to Lyme disease surveillance and food safety.
We look forward to seeing you for another CPHAZ Symposium in 2019!
