The collaborative and collegial training atmosphere encourages interdisciplinary research, frequent interactions with colleagues, networking and ample opportunities to showcase our PDFs research. There are a number of postdoctoral awards and funding opportunities that our PDFs can apply for such as the Michael G. DeGroote Fellowship Award. PDF achievements are also celebrated at the annual Health Sciences Research Plenary. Our PDFs go on to jobs in academia, industry and government.
