The Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) is delighted to congratulate the winners from our recent Canadian Science Policy Conference Competition. Each winner is sponsored by GlycoNet to attend the conference in Ottawa, Ontario, on November 13-15, 2019.
The Canadian Science Policy Conference is an event that brings together scientists, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, politicians, journalists, students and many others from across the country to discuss, exchange ideas, and mobilize knowledge regarding the present and future of Canadian science, technology, and innovation policy. GlycoNet-sponsored trainees will have the opportunities to meet with the stakeholders behind the science policy-making scenes and learn about science from a societal perspective.
The four awardees are:
- Fernando Altamura: PhD candidate, Cestari lab, Institute of Parasitology, McGill University
- Anne Halpin (@halpingal): PhD candidate, West lab, Departments of Pediatrics, Surgery, and Immunology, University of Alberta.
- Erum Razvi (@Erum_Razvi): PhD candidate, Howell lab, Sickkids Research Institute
