CCRM Australia offers unique training programmes to PhDs and ECRs that provide an international perspective on commercialising science, as well as the experiences of mentors who have worked in Regenerative Medicine on the global stage.
This year’s flagship programs were the International Workshop Placement at Summer By Design and the CCRM Australia’s collaboration with The Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) on a Regenerative Medicine International Mentoring Program.
We are looking forward to offering these programmes and other possible new training opportunities for next year. CCRM Australia will continue its vision by being a facilitator in training the future workforce in regenerative medicine to have dynamic business leadership.
International Workshop Placement
Summer By Design is an international workshop hosted by the University of Toronto’s Medicine by Design initiative in partnership with the Rotman School of Management. The program focuses on clinical translation and commercialisation of regenerative medicine, including activities for participants to network and share their knowledge.
CCRM Australia was proud to sponsor Sebastian Eggert from the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation at Queensland University of Technology and Jasmine Wilson from the University of Adelaide, whose research is supported by the CRC for Cell Therapy Manufacturing, to attend the Summer By Design workshop in July 2018. Both Australian representatives felt that their experiences were invaluable, taking away key learnings to incorporate into their current research the ideas and potential future collaborations.
International Mentoring Program
In collaboration with IMNIS, CCRM Australia was proud to launch Australia’s first international mentoring program designed for Australian PhD students in regenerative medicine. The program offers PhD students a unique opportunity to be mentored by an internationally-recognised, executive industry leader working in the regenerative medicine sector.The mentors involved in the program come from across the globe including the UK, USA, Israel and Canada.
Five exceptionally qualified candidates from across Australia have been selected for the program, who interact with their mentors through their monthly teleconference meetings. It is expected that these interactions will inform our candidates about the regenerative medicine industry as well as potential professional careers. This program will enhance the professional development and knowledge base of early career researchers. The mentees are also provided an opportunity to meet face to face with their mentors through supporting their attendance to a relevant regenerative medicine industry event with a CCRM Australia-IMNIS International Mentoring travel award.
CCRM Australia will continue its vision by being a facilitator in training the future workforce in regenerative medicine to have dynamic business leadership.
