Stem Cell Network Announces Awardees of the 2023 Summer Studentships

May 30, 2023 (Ottawa) – The SCN Summer Studentship program is starting! Congratulations to the 20 senior undergraduate students from across Canada who will each spend the summer months, between May and August, undertaking research at a Canadian academic institution under the supervision of a top regenerative medicine researcher. In total, SCN is investing $100,000 to supplement the cost of these summer studentships, providing a valuable hands-on experience for the awardees. At the end of August,  students will present their project progress at a virtual SCN summer studentship symposium and the two top undergraduates will be supported by SCN to attend and present a poster of their work at the 2023 Till and McCulloch Meetings (TMM2023), happening October 23-25 in Toronto.
