Become a CSCI Lobbyist for Increased Research Funding
CSCI encourages members to contact their local Member of Parliament at specific times so as to add emphasis to our coordinated lobby efforts. In the past, CSCI individuals have met with government ministers and their local MP’s. Some have invited their MP to visit their laboratory and staff to better sensitize them to the work being done in Canadian institutions and the urgent funding needs of biomedical researchers.
