International Internship Program

CIHR STAGE International Internship Program

This exciting and highly innovative component of CIHR STAGE provides trainees with opportunities for international collaborative experience. Four- to eight-month placements may be based either on an existing collaboration between labs abroad and those of STAGE mentors, or sought out by trainees elaborating their own short-term projects. CIHR STAGE has secured close partnerships with highly reputable international agencies, including:

  • The World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Genetic Epidemiology and Nutrition and Metabolism Units
  • Inserm (French National Institute of Health and Medical Research) UMRS 937 – Génomique Cardiovasculaire Unit
  • The Brazilian Agency for Graduate and Post-Graduate Education (CAPES)
  • The Consulate General of France
  • The University of Western Australia Centre for Genetic Epidemiology and Biostatistics
