Participants will be able to meet with an expert panel and gain insights into careers and discuss avenues for professional development. Additionally, pointers will be provided to guests to help them navigate through a networking lunch experience.

  1. Case Competition

Interested applicants will compete as a team in a neuroscience-based case competition. The majority of team members must be trainees (of any discipline) and only one team member can be research staff (e.g., research assistants, lab manager, lab technician). Teams will be required to submit a one-page proposal outlining their brain health solution or plan for innovation adoption in the first phase of the case competition. Semi-finalists will be contacted for the second phase and receive mentorship by a MaRS Innovation representative to build a pitch for the adjudication panel on conference day. The selected finalists will then present their pitch to the panel and winners will be awarded a monetary prize and an internship opportunity with one of the partner organizations. Note the case competition pitches are open to all spectators on conference day.
