A Retrospective Review of Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filter Insertion at Windsor Regional Hospital
Andrea Cervi, Windsor Regional Hospital
Seeking clinicians and researchers of all backgrounds, and people with expertise in thrombosis management would be a great addition. Statisticians always welcome.

Investigating Phenotypic and Molecular Profiles of Successful TKI Cessation in Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia
Caroline Hamm, Windsor Regional Hospital
In this session, we’re looking for scientists and those who work in genetic testing and counselling.

All disciplines and expertise, including students, are welcome to participate in WE-Spark Think Tanks.
