2018 May Edition
Welcome to the 2018 May Edition of the ORT Times!read more
The ORT Times is a monthly e-newsletter focused on UHN trainees featuring news and editorials about trainee life, articles to help developing researchers get the most out of their training experience at UHN, and tips on career development.
The content of The ORT Times is written primarily by the ORT coordinator and the Science Writer – who is a trainee writing part-time for the ORT, giving them valuable science writing experience. The ORT also accepts editorials, tutorials and other content written by UHN trainees.
If you have an idea and would like to write something for the ORT Times, please email the coordinator at email@example.com to pitch your idea.
UHN trainees go on to do amazing things! Whether you are a faculty member, an industrial scientist, a clinician, a science writer, an educator, a graduate student, or something we have not even imagined, we would love to know what you are doing and how your UHN training helped shape your future. Tell us about awards, discoveries, or exciting new career options. Your story can be highlighted here and through our monthly newsletter, The ORT Times. To see our past issues, go to our Archive page.
The ORT is pleased to offer a limited number of conference travel awards to enable graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to attend national and international conferences at which they will be presenting an oral and/or poster presentation.
Up to $500/award
Meetings and conferences occur throughout the year. In order to have awards adjudicated in advance, there will be competitions held three times a year:

Upon return from their conference, trainees who received an ORT Conference Travel Award write a short report briefly describing the conference and what they learnt there. These travel reports are published in our monthly newsletter – The ORT Times.
