Career Development

Career development of future researchers is a core focus of CREATE. The overall goal of career development is to identify and train investigators who will be future leaders in pulmonary fibrosis research.

Research training opportunities include:

  • PhD scholarships for projects supervised by CRE-PF investigators
  • Post-doctoral fellowships

Funding is available for short term travel/exchange and training opportunities for PhDs and PDFs in the CREATE Training Program to visit other facilities and labs and to develop their skills and networks. Grants are allocated via a competitive application process.
