Trainees from the Netherlands
This international trainee symposium brought together bright young trainees who will be our future independent investigators. While many were from Canada, the attendance of the Dutch trainees (photo below) was impressive and helped make this meeting extremely successful.
Thanks to the many who participated or made this meeting possible, including:
Dr. George Lambros (photo above, front row on left) and Canadian Pacific Railway for their sponsorship and continued commitment with “CP Has Heart” campaign @CPhasHeart
Anne Simard, Chief Mission and Research Officer @HeartandStroke Foundation of Canada
Dr. Sofia Ahmed (photo above, front row on right), Dr. Paul Fedak (Director of the Libin Institute) and the many colleagues & members of the Libin Institute’s #CV&Me initiative.
