This event will incorporate The Pam and Rolando Del Maestro Family Undergraduate Student Research Competition Awards. This undergraduate research competition is to showcase work to other scientists, researchers and professionals attending Research Symposium. Eight teams will be competing, of which the top three teams receive the opportunity to present at the Brain Tumour National Conference in Toronto in October 2018 to vie for the top prize. 

Presentations will be relevant to the brain tumour research community. Its purpose will be to provide students an opportunity to create a research proposal, practice presentation skills and receive constructive feedback from a panel that will include physicians and researchers. This competition allows students to network and create awareness while engaging the brain tumour community in brain tumour research. Find out more about the The Pam and Rolando Del Maestro Family Undergraduate Student Research Competition Awards and please learn more about the qualification process and associated deadlines as outlined in this document.

Candice is now advocating for every parent to look to the eyes.
