TRP networks and shares research at LMPRC!

The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology held its annual research conference this April. 

With almost 400 registrants and 140 research presentations, it was a great opportunity to see what was happening in LMP & TRP research. Students in the Translational Research Program (TRP) presented alongside students from the research stream (MSc and PhD) and MHSc in Laboratory Medicine (Clinical Embryology field) students. 

The conference was organised by students, trainees and staff in LMP, including TRP students, Mouzhan Varshoueitabrizi and Amena Ali.

This study aims to identify the factors contributing to diagnosis delays within the Canadian healthcare system and seeks to explore physicians’ current practices regarding DS-ASD and understand the challenges faced by caregivers.
