Trainee Communications Committee (TCC)

Stem Cell Network (SCN) is currently seeking enthusiastic and dynamic trainees to participate on SCN’s Trainee Communications Committee (TCC) from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021. This committee will play an important part in the development of SCN’s training program for young investigators.

Members are expected to provide insight and recommendation on the types of workshops and skills development activities that would best support trainees in the stem cell and regenerative medicine research space, and actively participate in the organization of workshops. Previous workshops developed by the TCC include Grant Writing & Peer Review, Journal Writing, Scientific Communications, Scientific Innovation, ELSI topics, and Meet the Experts Sessions.

Members of the TCC serve to represent all stem cell and regenerative medicine trainees from across Canada to SCN and its management committees. As such, members are selected to ensure national representation and representation of all Network areas of focus, including early translational research, clinical application, commercial and technology development, ethical and policy support.

To be eligible to apply for membership of the TCC, trainees must work in a Canadian university or research institute in the field of stem cells or regenerative medicine AND must be able to commit to complete the term April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021.

We look forward to having you join us!

Complete the application form and send it, along with any additional documents required, by email to the SCN office – rcadwalader@stemcellnetwork.ca by Wednesday November 27, 2019, 11:59 PM Pacific.
