Education & Training

Training at the Arnie Charbonneau Cancer Institute

The Arnie Charbonneau Cancer Institute commits to training the next generation of cancer researchers. The Institute provides trainees with a research home and opportunities to present their research, which are intended to promote constructive feedback on research ideas and data and stimulate collaboration among trainees and others. Additional dimensions of training, however, include the ability to network and acquire resources or other supports for their work, and frame their work within the greater landscape of cancer knowledge and care.

World Cancer Day 2024: To mark world cancer day we are celebrating the relentless dedication of the next generation of cancer researchers as they share their unwavering commitment to uncovering answers, improving outcomes and ultimately saving lives.

Our overarching education goal is to enable our trainees to become engaged members of the scientific community and prepare them to be future leaders in science and beyond.

We aim to:

  • Promote further skills-development in scientific knowledge exchange.
  • Attract and promote outstanding trainees locally, nationally, and internationally.
  • Increase research capacity by growing the funding available to support trainees, with a particular focus on equity, diversity, and inclusivity.
