Topic: It's About Time! Managing Priorities in Research and Mentoring Gone are the carefree days of your postdoc days, where you could commit your time solely to research. Group Leaders experience a constant barrage of tasks, both large and small, that must be balanced correctly in order to achieve success. Engage with other early career group leaders, the ISSCR Board of Directors, and the ISSCR Junior Investigator Committee to discuss strategies and experiences on time management to maximize your mentorship, research, and well-being.
Junior Investigators are invited to meet with leaders over lunch to discuss research techniques and topics, career paths and more. These relaxed networking luncheons allow ISSCR trainee members to actively discuss topics of common interest with peers and leaders in our community. Closer to the event, you will be invited to select your table leader.
Topic: Embracing Change: Recipes for a Successful Scientific Career Path Junior Investigators are invited to join the ISSCR Junior Investigators Committee and a panel of experts for an in-depth discussion in a casual lunch setting.
The concurrent sessions cover topics from across the spectrum of stem cell research. Each session, framed by a brief topic overview, includes one or two invited speakers whose work highlights leading research in the field. The session is rounded out with four or more abstract-selected speakers who, combined with the invited talks, give an excellent snapshot of the most current work on the topic. The five concurrent sessions run in parallel and attendees are encouraged to move between sessions to hear talks of interest. Concurrent sessions are held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday afternoons.
