Astronomy targets are not visible all year long, so I needed to apply for telescope time every couple of months to get observations of my targets. I was able to stay longer and collaborate in person at the Institute of Astronomy because of the Mitacs Globalink Award.
But while the Halifax-based startup had worked-out the mechanical design of its brace, its team knew they needed people with expertise in body movement and rehabilitation to test it. That’s where Mitacs Accelerate came in.
As a medical student at Brazil’s Faculdade de Ciências Médicas de Minas Gerais, Rayane knew Globalink would provide her with an international hands-on research experience directly related to her field of study.
