We get access to a highly-talented postdoc who is at the top of their game to do a very technically-driven project, while meeting aggressive timelines. In the long term, this partnership will better our science, while exposing us to a highly-skilled trainee that we can then draw on as we plan to expand our company." - Marianne Stanford, Director of ResearchImmunovaccine Inc., Nova Scotia

Babiuk, Vice President (Research), University of Alberta

The synergy between academia and business through my internship gave me an invaluable opportunity to practice my skills and to break into my field for the first time." - Juliet Van Vliet, Masters of Arts School of Community and Regional Planning, University of British Columbia
  • "In the past year I have learned much about the industry side of biotechnology and your program has expanded many of the professional skills that I was hoping to obtain. Most importantly, the Elevate program has opened up opportunities that would not have been possible otherwise. Thus, I really enjoyed the program and I hope to learn more and develop further within the next year." - Eva Szabo, Elevate PDF, McMaster University
