There is a four-tier registration. The four categories are: Regular Members, Early-Career Scientists, Industry/Pharma, and Virtual Attendee.

  • Regular Members - Scientists and researchers working for a non-profit organization such as a hospital, university, lab or research facility.
  • Early-Career Scientist - An Early-Career Scientist is a scientist/researcher with only 5-6 years post doctorate experience who does not work independently and is not the “Principal Investigator” on grants.
  • Industry/Pharma - Industry/Pharma are those who work in for-profit businesses such as medical care providers of services and products, as well as those companies that offer services and products to academic and research companies and institutions.
  • Virtual Attendance - We encourage those who are unable to travel to Toronto to choose this registration option.
