The 2020 ISRF is cancelled due to safety concerns regarding SARS-CoV2.

Simon Fraser University has notified ISRF board members that it has withdrawn from the offer to host the forum

Held annually since 2005 at sites around the globe, the ISRF has provided outstanding intellectual and professional development opportunities for graduate students and their growing circles of colleagues. An aim of the forum is to attract the world’s brightest, upcoming health scientists to exchange methods, results, and future ideas regarding their world-class research. Another aim is to provide venues for the Forum’s participants to network, and through that explore international research collaboration potentials within, and beyond, the boundaries of their disciplines and nationalities. Simon Fraser University is developing the 2020 ISRF Program to fulfill these aims.

The upcoming Forum will host 50 higher degree research candidates undertaking active Health Research, 10 participants from the 4 universities: Chinese Academy of Sciences, Griffith, Nebraska Medical Centre, and Southern Denmark.

We look forward to welcoming participants to the next ISRF.
