First CANNeCTIN Investigator's Workshop was held January 21-22, 2010 in Hamilton, Ontario!

The purpose of this workshop was to help investigators leading CANNeCTIN projects work effectively with the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) study and support teams in the conduct of CANNeCTIN studies, regardless of the research experience of the investigators, and to more generally help researchers design and implement successful Canadian and global research projects. The planning committee consisted of Drs. Salim Yusuf, PJ Devereaux, John Cairns and Eva Lonn and the workshop included interactive seminars by PHRI Researchers, Collaborators and Senior Personnel. Break-out sessions were held to allow investigators, study teams and representatives from PHRI ICT, Finance, and Statistics to meet regarding individual studies.
