The Research Centre held, on May 8 and 9, 2019, the 29th edition of the Scientific Days dedicated to research at Université Laval. This event is an opportunity for students and research professionals of the Centre to share their work with the community and this, in a convivial fashion. These are 105 presentations, including 35 oral ones and 70 in poster sessions that were made this year. The FRQS Award for the best oral presentation went to Mrs. Carole-Ann Huppé, doctoral student with Dr. David Marsolais, for her presentation “Le lymphocyte B: cible des modulateurs du récepteur S1P1 dans l’atténuation de l’hypersensibilité pulmonaire?” In addition to prizes awarded for the best presentations, two research fellowships were given during the closing banquet to students at the doctoral and master’s level by the IUCPQ Foundation, in partnership with Desjardins. These awards were handed to Jérémy Bernard (master’s level) and Mohamed-Salah Annabi (doctoral level), two students being qualified at the number one position in their category during the Centre’s annual scholarship competition.
