Dr. Jean-Philippe Chaput recently wrote a blog post titled, “Guest Post: My experience as a Junior Research Chair grantee,” that was featured on The Lawson Foundation’s blog.
From the post:
It’s hard to believe my 5 years with the Lawson Foundation as a Junior Research Chair grantee came to an end in August 2015! Time flies, but looking back at this unique and exciting journey reminds me how much I was able to accomplish in such a short period of time. When I decided to apply for this position in 2010, I was in the middle of my postdoctoral training at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). I flew from Copenhagen to Ottawa for the interview, and was so excited when I was offered the job! I started my position in September 2010 with the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO) at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute, and since the very beginning I have strived to push the boundaries of our knowledge in hopes of making a difference in the lives of children and their families.
