23nd Annual Research Day 2012
Research Day provides an opportunity for our clinical staff, residents, scientists, and medical students to update their peers on their ongoing and planned research projects.
The 23nd Annual Research Day of the Department was held on April 27th. There was a diverse range of presentations representing the broad range of research being conducted in vision sciences at Dalhousie. Our Keynote Speaker was Dr. Terri L. Young of the Duke Eye Centre.
