The Working on Walls Training Program was made up of the following personnel:

  • Faculty: The WoW Training Program was supervised by a group of life science and education researchers who have been chosen for their complementary expertise, research excellence and interest in post-graduate training.
  • Trainees: Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows train in an interdisciplinary, collaborative, and international environment.
  • Alumni: Trainees who completed the program are now working in academia and industry, in Canada, the US and internationally.
  • Collaborators:  Our collaborating institutions all offer exceptional international opportunities for WoW trainees. The associated researchers were chosen for their prominence in the field of plant cell wall biology, their enthusiasm for professional development, and their history of established working relationships with WoW  faculty. WoW trainees were encouraged to carry out part of their research where similar research efforts are underway at our collaborating institutions in Sweden, France, Japan and the USA.
