Trainee Communications Committee

The Trainee Communications Committee represents the views of SCN trainees from across Canada and plays an important role in the development of training program for young investigators. Members provide insight and recommendations to the Training Education Committee on the types of workshops and skill development activities that would best support trainees in the stem cell and regenerative medicine research space. Members actively participate in the organization of workshops that take place during the annual Till & McCulloch Meetings. Members also develop and implement tactics to ensure SCN trainees remain informed about SCN training and career development opportunities.
