Program Participants and Collaborators

The CATP training experience will be considerably enhanced by the participation and opportunities presented by the collaborators on this proposal. CATP collaborators will participate in many of the CATP training elements described above including joint supervision of CATP trainees, providing training internships in their organizations, access to, and training in, their lab facilities, and access to their field analogue sites.

International collaborators on CATP include scientists from NASA Ames, NASA JPL, Princeton University, Cornell University, and U. of Arizona. Many of the CATP researchers are Foreign Collaborators on NASA Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets (ASTEP) proposals, NASA Astrobiology Institute proposals, and Astrobiology Science and Technology Instrument Development (ASTID) proposals. Thus, CATP will immediately increase the mobility of trainees between Canada and the US with its provisions for travel to collaborating US institutions.
