We are pleased to announce the results of our April 2017 Alberta Innovates Training and Early Career Development (TECD) Programs competitions: Graduate Studentship and Clinician Researcher Training Stream.
The April 2017 competitions resulted in the approval of 17 graduate studentship, two MD-PhD studentship and five clinician fellowship awards.
We received a total of 285 submissions, which included 230 graduate studentship and 55 clinician researcher (eight MD-PhD studentship and 47 clinician fellowship) applications. Please see the list of successful graduate studentship applicants below.
To honor Alberta Innovates’ (formerly Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions) late President and CEO Dr. Cy Frank and his ability to identify and encourage the potential in young scientists, the Cy Frank Outstanding Graduate Studentship is awarded to the highest ranked student in the April 2017 graduate studentship competition. We will announce the award recipient in September 2017.
We thank all applicants for their substantial efforts and congratulate the recipients of these awards. We also would like to acknowledge the tremendous assistance provided by our review committee members.
