Near the end of August, the CR-HMR organizes a special day when students can present the results from their internship to the centre's scientific community. Awards are given to the best presentations to recognize the students’ contributions to advancing science, to encourage them to continue in this field, and to acknowledge the excellence of the most outstanding work.

Publication excellence awards

Each year, awards for publication excellence recognize the best publications by graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and research assistants who are the lead authors of papers published during the year.

The competition deadline is October 1 of each year.
