The PGCRI serves as a platform for PG students involved in cancer-related research to develop long term interdisciplinary collaborations, learn new skills, and discuss novel ideas. Formed in 2015, the PGCRI has primarily served as a mentorship program designed and run by PG students with the needs of students in mind. The group is supported by the CRI director and is led by a small team of masters and PhD students. Indeed, the PGCRI group offers a variety of activities to support students on their PG cancer research journey. To date, these activities include key skills workshops, seminars, informal coffee discussions, cross-disciplinary laboratory/clinic visits and hosting the 3-minute thesis competition.
