Research Day Chair's Message

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Trainees,

The Department of Psychiatry Research Day Committee is delighted to welcome you to join us at:

Department of Psychiatry Research Day
Thursday, June 15, 2023, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel - 123 Queen St W, Toronto, ON

This year, we will return to an in-person Department of Psychiatry Research Day for the first time in 3 years. More than ever, we will benefit from coming together as a community to recognize the outstanding research carried out in our Department, support the development of future psychiatry researchers, and connect with each other.

The deadline to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation is April 7, 2023. Please consider registering for the first Virtual Mentorship Breakfast as a mentee or mentor by May 1, 2023.

We are thrilled that this year’s Trevor Young Lecture in Psychiatry Research Keynote Presentation will be delivered by Dr. Linda Carpenter. Dr. Carpenter is a Professor of Psychiatry in the Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Chief of the Mood Disorders Program at Butler Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. She has been recognized for her work investigating the neurobiology of, and new treatments for, major depression and other mood and anxiety disorders. She has led several trials examining the efficacy and safety of novel neuromodulation treatments, including Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) for patients with mood and anxiety disorders. She is Director of the TMS Clinic and Butler Neuromodulation Research Facility. She is also currently the President of the Society of Biological Psychiatry.

We look forward to seeing you at Department of Psychiatry Research Day 2023!
