Research Day Chair's Message

Dear Faculty, Staff and Trainees,

On behalf of the Harvey Stancer Research Day Planning Committee for the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, I am delighted to announce:
The 45th annual Harvey Stancer Research Day
Thursday, June 20, 2019 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Chestnut Conference Centre, 89 Chestnut Street, Toronto
Harvey Stancer Research Day (HSRD) is a major function of the Department of Psychiatry at U of T. It allows our community to come together and provides a forum through which the outstanding research work carried out in our Department can be showcased and shared with the Department, the Toronto psychiatric community and the public. HSRD also aims to support the training of the next generation of psychiatry researchers, and provides the opportunity for trainees to prepare and deliver an academic presentation. With this in mind, we will be hosting a Mentorship Breakfast again. This event aims to connect trainees with faculty within our Department and is always a well-reviewed event, so be sure to join us!

This year’s Trevor Young Lecture in Psychiatry Research Keynote Presentation will be delivered by Dr. Michael P. Milham. Dr. Milham is one of North America’s most prolific neuroimaging researchers, recognized as one of Thomson Reuters/Clarivate Highly Cited Researchers (top 1 percent for Neuroscience and Behavior) every year since 2014. Dr. Milham is the Vice President of Research and the founding director of the Center for the Developing Brain at the Child Mind Institute. Dr. Milham has worked to advance a Big Data research agenda in the neuroimaging community, which focuses on open data sharing as a means of achieving the large-scale samples needed to capture the broader range of presentations in psychiatry. He co-founded the 1000 Functional Connectomes Project and founded its International Neuroimaging Data-Sharing Initiative (INDI). These efforts have helped to bring major consortia to the community, including the ADHD 200, Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange (ABIDE) and Consortium for Reliability and Reproducibility (CoRR).

We look forward to seeing you at Harvey Stancer Research Day 2019!
