Part of the Stem Cell Network’s mandate is to support the training of the next generation of more than 2,500 highly qualified personnel (HQP) who will lead and grow Canada’s regenerative medicine sector. It will be innovative early-career investigators, supported by SCN, who will develop new therapies, novel technologies and insightful research to inform policy development.

Some examples of our programs include:

Exchange Program:
Aims to provide researchers and trainees the opportunity to acquire specific skills or develop collaborations that will directly benefit their research project.
Travel Awards Program:
SCN offers a variety of travel awards to support trainees/HQP to learn and collaborate by enabling them to attend workshops and courses within Canada and internationally.
Bursary Program:
SCN bursaries provide financial assistance for eligible trainees to attend workshops and courses. In most cases, the bursary includes workshop registration fees, travel, hotel and meals costs. 

SCN would like to acknowledge the contributions and support from the Government of Canada, the SCN Training & Education and Trainee Communications Committees and our workshop and event partners, through which these knowledge translation activities have been made possible.
