BQC19: A key infrastructure to support COVID-19 research across the lifespan

Similarly to the 1st Users Forum, the objective of the event is to encourage research using BQC19 data and samples. At this 2nd Forum, the BQC19 characteristics will be presented in detail (participants profiles, collected data and samples, examples of data analyses) with a special emphasis on the BQC19 pediatric and long COVID cohorts.

A plenary session by Vincent Mooser, founding director of the BQC19 (2020-22) will kick start the afternoon and David Bujold will introduce the new data visualization and query tool, designed to facilitate the elaboration of research studies using the BQC19 collection.

A 60-minute exchange session will close the afternoon, where all participants will be able to share their experience and ask questions in an informal setting.

IMPORTANT: Due to the sanitary restrictions, only MUHC employees will be allowed to assist in person. All other participants will receive a videoconferencing link to join the Forum remotely.

Note that to alternate with the 1st Forum held in 2021, this year all presentations will be in English. However, you will be able to ask questions in the language of your choice.

The even will take place on Tuesday, November 29, 2022 from 12:30 – 4:30 p.m. at the McGill University Health Center Research Institute (MUHC-RI) and by videoconference.
