TRAINING ENVIRONMENT FOR DREAM TRAINEES
Trainees of DREAM are provided access to a top-notch training environment at the Children's Hospital Reseach Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM). CHRIM fosters multi-disciplinary research interactions that facilitate translational research between the pre-clinical, clinical and population health-based sciences. Additionally, CHRIM provides an open and collaborative environment, which houses many eminent researchers with whom our trainees forge strong research collaborations and receive mentoring and guidance. Another excellent training opportunity for our trainees is participation in our Annual Diabetes Symposium, which is organized and hosted by DREAM. This symposium provides an excellent opportunity for trainees to showcase their work and allow them to network with both local and international leaders in the diabetes field.
DREAM also has a DREAM Trainees Seminar Series, which provides students and trainees opportunities to share and discuss relevant research papers as well as discuss work in progress, obtain critical feedback on research projects and hone oral communication skills. The DREAM Trainees Seminar Series is also used as a forum to invite world-renowned researchers to meet with trainees and discuss exciting new avenues of research, career paths and advice on balancing work and home life. The creation of the DEVOTION research cluster has allowed the DREAM trainees and the student group from the Biology of Breathing group (BReaTH) to join forces and participate in joint professional development sessions. The translational nature of this environment cultivates a greater appreciation for the clinical and fundamental aspects of research related to type 2 diabetes in youth.
DREAM trainees have created their own monthly newsletter starting in January 2018 in order to keep everyone updated on important news, opportunities, successes and upcoming events. View the first newsletter below!
