The 2014 Annual Pathology Research Day was held on Friday March 28th, 2014 at the Great Hall, Somerville House.  The event was attended by over 100 faculty, residents, students, and staff.  The day started off with an outstanding keynote address delivered by internationally renowned cancer biologist, Dr Thomas Hudson, President and Scientific Director of the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.  His engaging talk was followed by Pathology trainee platform and poster presentations on a wide range of topics underscoring the multidisciplinary research being carried out in the Department of Pathology.        

The truly spectacular event was made possible by the hard work of many people.  Thank you to the Research Day planning committee and especially to Susan Stewart for all her hard work.  Thank you also to Mair Hughes, Rodney Hagle, Tracey Koning, Linda Jackson-Boeters, Susan Underhill, Cheryl Campbell, and Mellonie Carnahan.
