Mitacs Accelerate Internships


Mitacs’ Accelerate internship program enables graduate students or post-doctoral fellows to bridge the gap between academia, industry and non-profit organizations. As interns under the Mitacs-Accelerate program, participating BioCanRx HQP would offer their expertise and a fresh perspective to collaborative research projects. BioCanRx would like to foster innovative research collaborations within the cancer biotherapeutics sector across universities, industry, and non-profits. Any eligible projects that result will undoubtedly be interdisciplinary and offer unique opportunities for the participating trainees so we encourage interested PIs, graduate students, or post-doctoral fellows to reach out for more information. Applications are submitted to and evaluated by Mitacs.
