Abstract


In 2010, the annual general meeting of the Clinical Investigator Trainee Association of Canada – Association des cliniciens-chercheurs en formation du Canada (CITAC-ACCFC) and the Canadian Society for Clinician Investigators (CSCI) was held between September 20 and 22 in Ottawa. Several globally-renowned scientists, including this year’s CSCI/Royal College Henry Friesen Award recipient, Dr. Paul Kubes, Distinguished Scientist Award recipient, Dr. Gideon Koren and Joe Doupe Young Investigator Award recipient, Dr. Torsten Neil, discussed a variety of topics relating to the role of technology in medicine.

The meeting was well attended by clinician scientists and trainees from across Canada and offered trainees mentorship and networking opportunities in addition to showcasing their research at the young investigator forum. The aim of this scientific overview is to highlight the research presented by trainees at both the oral plenary session as well as the poster presentation sessions of this meeting. Similar to last year’s meeting [1], research questions being investigated by trainees covered the spectrum of medical disciplines, encompassing both basic science as well as clinical areas, and are summarized below.
