Biophysical Society of Canada Trainee Symposium

The Trainee Symposium marks the commencement of the annual Biophysical Society Conference bringing together trainees from across Canada. It provides attendees with valuable opportunities to present their research, engage with leaders in various scientific fields, and participate in enriching networking opportunities with their fellow trainees. Participants will hear from several distinguished career speakers about their various career paths and interesting career highlights. Following these presentations, career speakers will participate in a panel where trainees can ask questions to gain a unique insight from these distinguished members of the scientific community. This will be followed by a networking session with coffee and snacks provided for trainees to have further discussions with the invited career speakers as well as their fellow trainees. The final session will be dedicated to trainees presenting their research in a series of short talks to highlight the wonderful research being done by trainees in biophysics across Canada.
