DEDICATED TO TRAINING THE NEXT GENERATION
BioCanRx’s mission is to build and foster a network that accelerates Canada’s most promising biologically based cancer therapies into clinical trials. An essential component of BioCanRx’s success in achieving this mandate is training and development of highly qualified personnel (HQP) who are skilled in all aspects of clinical translation, from bench to clinic. For this reason, BioCanRx’s training mandate is targeted at HQP working in all relevant disciplines (e.g, virology, immunology, health policy, implementation and knowledge translation) and at all training and professional levels (e.g., from high school students to senior research and clinical staff).
The BioCanRx HQP Development Committee advises on training programs and initiatives, which consists of network investigators, technical staff leadership, industry partners, charities and HQP representatives from the BioCanRx network.
