TACC Research Forum: Dr. Arjun A. Bhaskaran wins the Audience’s Choice Award at the Pre-INSAR Blitz

April 21st, 2021

On April 21st, 2021, TACC held its annual Pre-INSAR Blitz. Each year, in preparation for the Annual Meeting organized by the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR), TACC invites its student members to present their research to the broader network. This year, a group of 30 TACC researchers, students, donor representatives and QART trainees attended the short presentations, moderated by QART Trainees and Student Representatives Anjie Ni (Cohort 3) and Samantha Wong (Cohort 2). The 2021 presenters were Dr. Arjun A. Bhaskaran, Athanasios Markopoulos, Dr. Jeffrey McCrossin (QART Trainee), and Dr. Myriam Beauchamp (QART Trainee). Each presentation was followed by a question period, where attendees could connect directly with presenters. To read their abstracts and learn more about their research, please click here.

New this year was the “Presenter’s Choice Award”. Attendees voted for the trainee with the best overall presentation, which came with a prize of $100 CAD. We wish to congratulate this year’s winner, Dr. Arjun A. Bhaskaran, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics at McGill University.

Congratulations to all trainees that participated in the 2021 Pre-INSAR Blitz! To learn more about the QART program and its activities, click here.
