Annual New Principal Investigators Meeting

Annual New Principal Investigators MeetingThis meeting is for new faculty (in their first four years) at Canadian universities, including new scientists and clinician scientists in the genetics and biochemistry, developmental biology, bioinformatics, cell biology, health policy and ethics communities.

The overall goal of the meeting is to facilitate the career development of these "newly hatched" health researchers. The meeting fosters the formation of peer networks between the New PIs working in related or overlapping areas of research. In addition, a significant portion of the meeting is devoted to mentoring, both through formal presentations by "star" senior scientists followed by discussion, as well as many informal interactions. New PIs are counseled on grant & paper writing, on running a lab, managing budgets, and interacting with lab personnel.

Approximately 100 new PIs and clinicians from across the country meet and engage with their peers and with leading scientists from a variety of disciplines.
