Join us every Friday in October for talks, workshops, abstract presentations, and networking events focused on patient-oriented research.

Every Friday in October, the Alberta SPOR Support Unit and our SPOR-funded partners across western and northern Canada, will host top experts in patient-oriented research for the 2021 SPOR Northwest Virtual Institute.

The theme for this year, evolution and adaptation in patient-oriented research: Infectious ideas for a changing world, will shed light on the important role patient-oriented research plays in a post-pandemic world.
