NMD4C Pre-clinical Science Pillar Seeking Trainee Input

The NMD4C cell and animal-based task groups are actively seeking the input of neuromuscular trainees to help inform our activities, including: 

  • Facilitating training and lab exchanges for trainees 
  • Organizing a summer school to train basic researchers 
  • Creating and maintaining a database of Canadian research lab expertise (techniques, cell/animal lines, models etc.) 

If you are willing to participate in a committee that will meet periodically to share input on NMD4C cell and animal-based research activities, we want to hear from you! 

To register your interest, please complete our short (1-2 min) survey here to be contacted with more information. If you are a senior researcher, please feel free to complete the survey yourself and/or share it with the trainees in your lab! 

For further information on this opportunity or for specific questions, please contact network coordinaor James Davis at .
