Trainee Engagement Committee (TEC)

The CSI TEC has two main goals: (1) social media management (2) trainee engagement at the annual CSI conference. (1) To engage the immunology and general community to promote awareness of immunology and provide a reliable and professional resource for information on research and immunology-related news. (2) The TEC should strive to provide sessions/activities at the Spring meetings that will foster meaningful connections between immunology trainees from across Canada that will extend beyond the scientific meeting. Historically this session has been titled the “trainee mixer”. Additional sessions for trainees to promote career or skills development may also be hosted by the CSI TEC.
