The workshop goal is to strengthen the Research Team’s full application stage of the Human Immunology Initiative and foster the creation of a coordinated workforce in human immunology research applied to autoimmunity in Canada. It will provide an opportunity for dialogue between researchers who have been successful at the Letter of Intent (LOI) and the team that was successful at the Standardization Core competition [i.e. CAN-ASC]. It is also an opportunity to explore ways in which the Standardization Core can support the Research Teams, and the Research Teams can leverage the work of the Standardization Core. In addition, the workshop will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas with national and international experts and partners to explore strategies and tools for strengthening the team’s full applications.
