CIHR Town Hall with Memorial Research Community
Tuesday, May 18, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
This country’s major federal funding agency for health research is inviting members of the Memorial community to an interactive town hall.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is hosting an hour-long virtual meeting with Memorial.
President Vianne Timmons will join CIHR President Dr. Michael Strong for the event.
Researchers, research administration staff and postdoctoral fellows are invited to attend.
Joining Drs. Timmons and Strong will be Dr. Neil Bose, vice-president (research) and Dr. Robert Bertolo, professor, Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Science, and Memorial’s CIHR University Delegate.
Dr. Strong will provide updates from CIHR, including its 2021-2031 strategic plan. The town hall also provides Dr. Strong the opportunity to learn more about the innovative work of Memorial researchers and the university’s research priorities.
Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their perspectives.
Questions can be submitted in advance via email to email@example.com (please use subject line CIHR Town Hall) or live via the Q&A function.
If audience members would like to appear on screen to interact directly with Drs. Strong and Timmons, that can be arranged during the event through the Q&A function.
Members of the Memorial community who plan on attending this event should visit here to enrol in the course called “CIHR Town Hall.”
The link, which requires your MUN Login, will automatically enrol you and take you to the course site in Brightspace. This can be done at any point between now and the event start time.
On May 18, attendees should return to Brightspace prior to the 1:30 p.m. start time to join the event. There will be two options for joining the forum: a Webex link that will allow you to ask questions and join the conversation or a view-only YouTube stream for those who want to watch the event but not actively participate.
Please note the Webex event is limited to 1,000 participants. If that number is reached, all additional attendees will be directed to the view-only stream.
For those who cannot attend the live event, it will be archived and available at a later date.
