ULTRA Scientists Day (ULtimate Trainee Retreat to Advance Scientists Day)

Wednesday, November 9th, 2022, 8:30 a.m. – 4:40 p.m.
The Diabetes Action Canada (DAC) Training and Mentoring Program and Diabetes Canada in collaboration with The Canadian Islet Research and Training Network (CIRTN), The Canadian Child Health Clinician Scientist Program (CCHCSP), the Empowering Next-generation Researchers in perinatal and Child Health (ENRICH) training platform and the Maximize your Research on Obesity and Diabetes (myROaD) training platforms are excited to announce the ULTRA Scientists Day (ULtimate Trainee Retreat to Advance Scientists Day)! This event will take place on Wednesday, November 9th, 2022, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. in Calgary, Alberta prior to the 2022 Diabetes Canada/Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism Professional Conference and Annual Meetings held on November 9th-12th, 2022.
This is an excellent opportunity for learners to advance their skills in patient engagement in research and intersectionality, writing a knowledge mobilization/translation plan, peer mentorship and conflict resolution. Additionally, our Pub Scientifique is back! Our panelists are looking forward to discussing and answering career-related (and life-related) questions from trainees in an informal and fun setting.
IMPORTANT! Those who wish to register for the ULTRA Scientists Day must submit an assignment for the writing workshop to secure their registration.
This assignment must include a two-page maximum research proposal and a half-page knowledge translation plan. The assignment will be evaluated and discussed by your peers in breakout groups and by seasoned reviewers during the workshop. You can submit a recent or upcoming studentship application, as you will get feedback from other trainees and faculty that may strengthen the proposal or an entirely new submission for a project you would like to tackle in the future.
The proposal should be single-spaced, using either 12-point Times New Roman or 11-point Arial font, with a minimum margin of 2 cm around each page. Condensed type or photo-reduction, except for figures, will not be accepted. References, figures and tables can be added to a third page.
The proposal should provide a clear, concise outline of your proposed project, including a brief rationale for the study, hypotheses, objectives, experimental design, methods and statistical analyses, significance of the work, and possible barriers to the work and solutions to overcome them.
The half-page knowledge translation plan should include: (i) your goal(s) for translating the knowledge you produce from your research; (ii) who are your knowledge users (i.e., all stakeholders who will either be interested to learn about your research results or will use or apply the results); (iii) what KT products or KT activities you might consider to disseminate your results to increase their uptake by your target knowledge users (e.g., passive strategies such as publications and
presentations as well as more interactive and tailored strategies such as workshops, social media); and (iv) who will deliver or be the messenger of the results (e.g., this could be researchers, clinicians, patients, organizations, networks, etc.). Please refer to the CIHR guide to end of grant KT https://cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/45321.html#a7, and guide to KT https://cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/45321.html when preparing your content.
