Expanding Horizons

The Expanding Horizons Program is a professional development program for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are currently working on prion research.

The objective of this program is to provide research trainees with access to mentoring in order to develop skills and knowledge that are applicable both within and outside of the lab. Seminars focus on career development in research as well as other careers they might undertake such as those in industry or policy making. Ensuring trainees are skilled in topics like lab management, networking, communicating, interview skills and grant crafting will benefit their futures as well as the future of prion research.
