*** Friday 9 October: final program and abstract booklet now available - see below ***
The Young Investigator Symposium is moving online! In 2020, we’re bringing together two key events from the VIIN calendar – our Careers Evening and the YIS – in a week-long festival of infection and immunity: the VIIN Young Investigator Symposium Series 2020!
Join us for a daily session between Monday 12 October and Friday 16 October in a program of online activities that will include:
- Scientific presentations selected from your abstracts
- Keynote speakers
- A careers panel
The purpose of the Young Investigator Symposium Series this year is to provide students, RAs and postdocs an online forum for networking, career development and scientific exchange. We hope it will provide you with an opportunity to keep in touch with colleagues, present your research, and develop your CVs – while we all adapt to the challenges presented by COVID-19. We hope you can join us for a session or two.
Prizes will be awarded for best presentations.
All welcome - undergraduate and post-graduate students, research assistants, post-doctoral scientists from academic and industry.
Registration (open Monday 27 July - Wednesday 7 October):
Lab heads and senior researchers - please attend and support your Young Investigators, even if you can only join for a session or two!
- Associate Professor Kimberley Kline, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
- Dr Amy Chung, Peter Doherty Institute of Infection and Immunity, University of Melbourne
