MIRA Trainee Network
The MIRA Trainee Network includes graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and MIRA undergraduate research fellows with interests in research on aging. The network connects trainees from across all six McMaster Faculties, creating an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange and networking.
Organized and governed by the trainees, the group meets for coffee, research presentations and informal conversation on the last Friday of every month in MDCL 3504 from 9 – 10 a.m. During this time, trainees have the opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities related to their research on aging, gain interdisciplinary perspectives on their work and learn about potential future careers.
All trainees are welcome. To join the network and receive communications about trainee events and funding opportunities in aging, including MIRA trainee funding, sign up here. Email Audrey Patocs at email@example.com to direct inquiries.
