CHAT Discovery Program

The CHAT Discovery Program was designed to foster the development and retention of upcoming, outstanding researchers in areas critical to achieving CANet goals. By allowing HQP trainees the opportunity to be principal investigator on their own original research ideas, CANet is helping these unique candidates become more competitive in Canadian employment and research environments.
