GlycoNet s'est engagé à mettre en place un programme de formation efficace.

La communauté glycomique canadienne s’appuie sur plus de 50 ans de formation remarquable de personnel hautement qualifié (PHQ). Les pionniers dans le domaine ont commencé leur carrière dans les années 1950 et 1960. Ils ont formé des scientifiques qui ont dirigé des groupes à travers le Canada au cours des décennies suivantes. Les scientifiques de troisième et quatrième générations formés en glycomique au Canada accomplissent actuellement des recherches révolutionnaires et dirigent GlycoNet.

GlycoNet s'est engagé à mettre en place un programme de formation efficace. L’objectif fondamental des activités de formation de GlycoNet est de fournir aux stagiaires un large éventail de compétences pour les aider à réussir leur carrière dans les universités ainsi que dans les industries pharmaceutiques et biotechnologiques.

Les initiatives de formation de GlycoNet

Les initiatives de formation de GlycoNet incluent actuellement:

  • GTA-EC HQP Le comité de consultation GTA-EC HQP
  • Développement professionnel, en particulier dans les domaines du transfert de technologie, de l’entreprenariat et de la gestion de projet, ainsi que des « compétences non technique » telles que la communication et le réseautage
  • Formation sur la recherche multidisciplinaire entre groupes et stages industriels
  • Bourses d'été pour étudiants de premier cycle, bourses de voyage et possibilité pour les PHQ de poursuivre leur propre petit projet de recherche par le biais du Programme de Formation Avancée (ATOP, Advanced Training Opportunity Program)
  • Ressources et leçons en ligne pour les classes de sciences de l’école secondaire

HQP Alumni Testimonials

“GlycoNet funding enabled me to practice more project management; at my current employment, this is one of the major focuses... GlycoNet also allowed me to present at an international conference, speak with industry representatives about our technologies, and talk with venture capital firms.”
Director Research Development, Covalon Technologies
“After studying genetics for five years at the undergraduate level, I am finally getting the chance to see the techniques I have learned about in action and to experiment with DNA myself. Gaining experiences like performing genotyping will certainly prepare me for the career as a genetic counselor. My project will allow me to assess the impact of patient mutations on enzyme activity to better understand how these mutations translate to disease.”
Undergraduate Student, University of Manitoba
“As a trainee, GlycoNet provided me with many opportunities to develop transferable skills. I learned a lot about communication, leadership, and management. I also had the opportunity to develop grantsmanship skills through the ATOP grant. These are all important tools I can leverage to excel as an Assistant Professor.”
Assistant Professor, University of Alberta
“The ATOP experience was exceptional. It was a unique opportunity to develop my writing and management skills. As a postdoctoral fellow, I was familiar with writing scientific publications and supervising undergraduate students, but not with writing a project description nor the financial and training related sections of a grant application. ATOP offered the perfect conditions to teach senior HQP like myself how sciences project are administered and I feel now more prepare to embrace my future career as, I hope, a future PI.”
Postdoctoral fellow, McGill University
"The GlycoNet Summer Award has provided me with a refreshing and exciting opportunity to research biological chemistry in the Withers Lab at UBC, expanding from my studies of biochemistry. This pursuit has provided me with new perspectives and new approaches to understanding the interplay between chemistry and biology, especially because of the many researchers that I am exposed to thanks to this opportunity. I can hear from international scholars at seminars and experienced lab members during group meetings, all with their own approaches to solving problems with science. The funding allows me to treat my learning as a job and get excited by my contributions to the lab’s research.”
Undergraduate Student, University of British Columbia
