The Young Investigator Symposium is open for registration! In 2021, we’re again bringing together two key events from the VIIN calendar – our Careers Evening and the YIS – in a 3-day festival of infection and immunity: the VIIN Young Investigator Symposium Series 2021!
Join us between Monday 15 November and Wednesday 17 November for 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 continue to live with the challenges presented by COVID-19. We hope you can join us for a session, or the whole program.
Prizes will be awarded for best presentations.
All welcome - undergraduate and post-graduate students, research assistants, post-doctoral scientists from academic and industry.
