The Ryerson Career and Co-op Centre (RCCC), and the Canadian Society for Molecular Bioscience (CSMB) are pleased to announce a Career Development offering to support trainees, graduate, undergraduate students and early career professionals with their career development.
The first component of this offering is a “Creating an Effective CV” webinar on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 from 11 am to 12 noon EST. To register follow https://bit.ly/CSMBCVWebinar
James Davie attended a meeting of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biochemistry (IUBMB), which took place August 19-22 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He brought his knowledge of CSMB to meetings of the IUBMB executive committee in his capacity as IUBMB General Secretary.
One of my IUBMB activities will be to link Trainee Committees that are active in the societies affiliated with IUBMB. So this is an international effort. The goal is to help establish a trainee committee to those societies that do not have one, and second see if we can form a IUBMB international trainee committee.
The CSMB executive and trainee committees look forward to working with the CSMB to promote the careers of trainees around the world.
The CSMB is collaborating with Evidence for Democracy – E4D to ensure that all CSMB members have tools to help them understand the importance of science-informed policy making and to connect with their elected representatives.
E4D has prepared two very useful documents on how to connect with your representative (Connecting with Reps – Toolkit), and a specific brief for the 2019 elections (2019_Federal_Election_Brief). We invite you to read both documents, and also to view a training webinar CSMB organized with E4D in September 2018 – below.
Stay connected to CSMB for more materials to come from E4D later in the summer relating to connecting directly with candidates.
The CSMB-SCBM trainee committee is partnering with BenchSci for a special webinar.
The “reproducibility crisis” has generated much attention in the research community over the past years. While the issue is multifaceted at its core, rogue antibodies have been identified as one of the major culprits.
To ensure scientists can find antibodies that have been proven to work repeatedly by peers, we developed an open-access resource that uses a machine learning algorithm to screen the literature and identify which and how antibodies have been cited. The resulting peer-reviewed data are searchable by protein targets or product identifier and are filterable by experimental contexts as cited in papers, including technique, tissue, cell line, to help users pinpoint antibodies that have been published under experimental conditions matching their study interest.
On March 19th, the Liberal federal government announced its fourth budget, ahead of the November federal election. After careful reading of this document, the CSMB Trainee Committee published this response.+ + + →
