DataBlitz Videos - Day 2
I would like to start by thanking all the trainees for presenting their data at our DataBlitz. The presentations were of very high quality. It was a really successful event, and it achieved — at least for me — to build a sense of community.
We had 29 presentations representing 25 labs.
I would also like to thank the judges, Lauren Atlas, Rachael Bosma, Iacopo Cioffi, Yenisel Cruz-Almeida, Patrick Finan, and Laura Stone, for their time and thoughtful comments. None of this would have been possible without them.
I would also like to thank the sponsors: IASP, the Canadian Pain Society and QST-Lab.
