NCOHR will host a Technology, Translation and Commercialization (TTC) workshop: Career Paths and Research Funding Opportunities in Toronto, ON, from July 30-31.
The two-day workshop will focus on innovation and translation of research, and include representatives from industry, regulatory agencies and academia. For more information, view the agenda and application form.
The goal of this two day workshop is to introduce and discuss the potential opportunities that exist by taking a pro-active approach to implementing research commercialization into curriculum and to encourage members of the dental science community to take advantage of this changing research and training environment. Such activity now provides significant new and creative research career pathways for trainees and their research supervisors thanks to new industrial post-doctoral awards and Campus linked accelerators for start-up companies. There will be invited guests from funding agencies describing funding strategies for your Faculties. Discussion groups to develop strategies for growth in the area for Faculties of Dentistry, keynote speakers who will present on case studies related to the dental field, and presentations on Institute driven initiatives and curriculum changes which have been designed with an applied perspective, will be some elements of this unique workshop.
Who should attend:
- Faculty members looking to expand funding opportunities or to maximize translation of their research findings.
- Postdoctoral fellow and graduate students interested in working in knowledge-based environments.
- Graduate program coordinators seeking to refresh traditional graduate program curriculum.
