Overview of LDI research at annual scientific retreat
Scientists, clinicians and trainees of the Lady Davis Institute at the JGH gathered in late May for the fifth Annual Scientific Retreat, where presentations were delivered about significant research in the LDI’s six primary issue areas—cancer, epidemiology, hemovascular diseases, HIV/AIDS, diseases of aging, and psychosocial aspects of disease.
A principal investigator from each group spoke about his or her area of expertise, and select trainees made oral and poster presentations of their work. First prize for best oral presentation was awarded to Michael Dahabieh of Dr. Wilson Miller’s cancer lab for his work on lymphoma. Second prize went to Leora Witkowksi of Dr. William Foulkes’ cancer lab for research into the genetics of small-cell ovarian cancer.
