2019 BCREGMED Trainee Workshop

2019 Trainee Workshop

In 2018 we introduced our Trainee Workshop!
The aims of this workshop were to:

Engage trainees, as current and future players in the BCREGMED and cell therapy sectors, in a discussion on the direction and future needs of this rapidly growing area

Facilitate trainee professional development by exposing the trainees to careers in REGMED and cell therapy in BC

Provide a unique networking opportunity for student trainees to benefit from the guidance of alumni, industry and academic experts in their fields

Due to overwhelming participation, we are bringing our trainee-led day back this year this time focusing on informal scientific communication strategies, equity, diversity, and inclusion, as well as careers in science!
