Contact if you have any questions or are having difficulties registering for this event. 

Abstract Selection

Abstracts must be 300 words or less with no special characters. Poster dimensions will be posted shortly.

Our review panel this year will consist of PhD students, a Postdoctoral Fellow, and a PI. This group will have representation from several departments and faculties, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of CRINA’s membership. Abstracts will be collected and stripped of all identifiers, leaving only the title and abstract itself before forwarding these to the committee for evaluation. In this anonymized fashion, the group will review the abstracts and vote, abstaining from voting where a conflict of interest could potentially arise. We look forward to the quality of abstracts that we expect to receive and look forward to the poster sessions and oral presentations. If you have any questions or suggestions for improvement, please contact the CRINA team at
