The final AllerGen NCE Scientific Conference is being held this week in Toronto, and today’s program was entirely dedicated to the CHILD Study! Dr. Azad spoke about the unique elements of the CHILD Manitoba site (our rural sub-cohort and DXA body composition assessments) and Chaired a session about the CHILD Knowledge Mobilization Stakeholder Advisory Committee. Azad Lab trainees Kozeta Miliku & Deborah Chan gave their 1-minute lightning round presentations. It was an exciting day of presentations about the past and future of CHILD, including a session with four CHILD families from across the country.
Dr. Kozeta Miliku from the Azad Lab was one of 27 trainees from the Canadian Respiratory Research Network (CRRN) nominated and invited to present her work during "Lightning Rounds" at its annual meeting in Ottawa.
The top 4 presentations received a "Trainee Lightning Presentation Award”, and Dr. Miliku was one of them! Congratulations!
