PROMOTE stands for Programmed Molecules for Therapeutics, Sensing and Diagnostics. This is an NSERC CREATE program that brings together 11 academic faculty members and their trainees from across Canada with 52 collaborators (academic and industrial) from around the world, who together represent some of the most innovative groups in nucleic acid and biomaterial science.
This program will cultivate future entrepreneurs engaged in commercializing their discoveries in biomaterials. The students will participate in a training program designed to offer enriched academic, entrepreneurial and professional development opportunities.
Advances in nucleic acid discoveries and technologies are emerging at an amazing pace and Canada is home to this expertise at several of our six universities.
