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 46th annual Harvey Stancer Research Day
Thursday, June 18, 2020 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. This event 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 also host a Mentorship Breakfast as part of HSRD. 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. Catherine Monk. Dr. Monk’s research brings together perinatal psychiatry, developmental psychobiology and neuroscience to focus on the earliest influences on children’s developmental trajectories, opportunities to intervene early and prevent risk for mental health disorders.
We look forward to seeing you at Harvey Stancer Research Day 2020!
