Canadian Arthritis Research Conference

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on July 25, 2022 in Events

The Arthritis Society, Canadian Rheumatology Association and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research-Institute of Musculoskeletal Heath and Arthritis invite researchers to submit abstracts for presentation at the fourth annual Canadian Arthritis Research Conference (CARC). Participants at all career stages, including but not limited to, faculty members, research associates, clinicians, trainees of all levels, and consumers/patient partners are encouraged to submit abstracts that relate to the theme of Arthritis Across the Lifespan. 

They encourage biomedical, clinical, health systems, and population health research in the broad field area of arthritis. This is an opportunity to share your work with colleagues nationally and internationally.

If your abstract is accepted, you will be invited to present your research through an oral presentation at one of the pre-conference Research Presentation Days to be held virtually on January 31, February 6, & February 14, 2023.

If you are interested in sharing your research or getting more information about the conference, please visit the CARC website.

The scientific committee aims to feature at least 50% trainee presentations from undergraduate, master’s students, and PhD candidates.
