Save the Date - 2nd Annual CNTRP Scientific Meeting
Thank you to all CNTRP members who joined us for the Inaugural Annual CNTRP Scientific Meeting in Halifax. There was tremendous enthusiasm amongst participants to build on our early successes and help strengthen new and existing collaborations across the country and across health research disciplines. Over two busy days we hosted a successful New Initiatives Session, heard updates on the Project and Cores, had a highly interactive Training Session, held a joint Symposium with the Canadian Blood and Marrow Transplant Group, and further developed CNTRP policies in various committee meetings. A very special thanks to Dr. Alain Beaudet (CIHR President), Drs. Kathryn Wood and Roslyn Manon (External Advisory Board Members), Ms. Hélène Campbell (Senior Advisory Council member) and Dr. Jean-Claude Tardif (MHICC) for attending the meeting, engaging with our researchers and sharing their insights with us. In addition, we would like to thank Drs. Silvy Lachance, Stephen Couban, and Chris Bredeson of CBMTG for their help and support in organizing the joint CBMTG-CNTRP symposium and coordinating with the CBMTG annual meeting, and to the CIHR Institute of Infection and Immunity and the CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health for their generous financial support of the meeting. Finally, thank you to Drs. Marie-Josée Hébert and Jean-Sébastien Delisle for their dedication and hard work in organizing and chairing our very successful first CNTRP meeting in Halifax.
Mark your calendars now and join us next year on October 6-7, 2015 in Vancouver for the 2nd Annual CNTRP Scientific Meeting, preceding the CST Annual Scientific Meeting. Sincerely, Dr. Lori West - CNTRP Director
