CSLSR's Mission

1. Advance the understanding of life science research by bringing together students and scientists of diverse backgrounds, by facilitating the integration of research directed at all levels, and by encouraging translational research and the application of new scientific knowledge to develop improved disease treatments and cures.

2. Promote professional development activities, information, and educational resources for life scientists at all stages of their careers, including undergraduates, graduates, medical students and post doctoral fellows, and increase participation of scientists from a diversity of backgrounds. -through the website and through affiliate institutions/supporters, giving students avenues to pursue careers in research.

3. Promote public information and general education about the nature of scientific discovery and the results and implications of the latest research. Support active and continuing discussions on ethical issues relating to the conduct and outcomes of life science research. Our focus is (but not limited to) the student researcher and our mission is to provide an avenue for them to present their work as the future of Canada's life sciences and medicine, and ultimately translating into improved health care. -through the website, quarterly booklet, at annual conferences and through an annual publication.

4. To promote the opportunity for funding for students, Canada's research institutions and facilities, and to bring students together with potential supervisors for Summer or graduate life science research work.

5. Inform legislators and other policy makers about new scientific knowledge and recent developments in life science research and their implications for public policy, societal benefit, and continued scientific progress.
