Members of the CCNA research community are invited to submit abstracts for the CCNA Science Day poster session, “CCNA Science Marketplace” (November 1, from 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm).

This is an opportunity to showcase your work and foster collaborations with other CCNA investigators, trainees, and partner organizations.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically no later than: 5:00 pm EST on Monday, July 17, 2017

The session will have two poster streams:


1. General CCNA-Affiliated Investigators/Clinicians

Investigator members of CCNA themes, teams, platforms, and programs are encouraged to submit abstracts for CCNA-related work. Submissions must meet the general inclusion criteria listed in the Abstract Submission Form and will be subject to an administrative review.

If you have any questions about the general poster stream, please contact Sacha Nadeau, Knowledge Translation Program Coordinator:


2. CCNA-Affiliated Trainees

CCNA-affiliated trainees are encouraged to submit abstracts dealing with their CCNA-related work. The CCNA Training and Capacity Building Program is pleased to announce that a limited number of competitive CIHR-CCNA Travel Awards are available for CCNA-affiliated trainees interested in presenting their work at the 2017 CCNA Science Day. A committee will review the abstracts submitted by trainees and select which trainees will receive a travel award. Please note that trainees who do not require (e.g., reside in the Toronto area) or do not receive a travel award are still invited to register for the Annual Meeting, present their poster, and attend the trainee and general sessions that will be part of the program.

If you have any questions about the trainee poster stream, please contact Amanda Duncan, Training and Capacity Building Program Coordinator:

*Trainees who want to be considered for a travel award should indicate this on the Abstract Submission Form.


All posters presented by CCNA-affiliated trainees that meet the requirements listed (see below) will be considered for trainee research poster awards supported by the Alzheimer Society of Canada. A review committee will judge the posters with awards presented in three categories based on level of training: Masters, MD/PhD, and postdoctoral researcher.


*Poster abstracts may be submitted in English or French (note: the submission form is available in English only).

*Please note that no additional funds are being allocated to cover poster production costs.
