Congratulations to Dr. Jean-Philippe Chaput who has been invited to the first Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes (INMD) New Investigator meeting. The meeting will be held December 6th-8th, 2012 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The purpose of the INMD New Investigator Meeting is to bring together researchers at the early stages in their careers from across the mandate areas of INMD and from across all four research themes (biomedical, clinical, health services, & population and public health) for an interactive and informative meeting with the intent to: (a) enhance success in obtaining future funding; (b) build bridges between researchers from different areas and themes; (c) acquire additional skills to translate knowledge; and (d) draw inspiration and mentorship from distinguished researchers. This is indeed an honour for JP!
