Organized in collaboration with the Associate Membership Council (AMC), Minorities in Cancer Research (MICR) Council, Science Education and Career Advancement Committee and Women in Cancer Research (WICR) Council, this session is designed to assist with the professional and career development of investigators at all career levels. The session will consist of informal small-group conversations at roundtables with representatives from varying roles in the academic, industry, and government sectors. Participants will have the opportunity to informally speak with a roundtable mentor about his/her experiences, successes, and lessons learned that have helped establish the mentor’s career path.
This Professional Advancement session provides students, postdoctoral candidates, and junior faculty the opportunity to discuss important career development issues and survival skills with senior establish scientists. The session will be broken up into two rounds with approximately 10 participants per table informally speaking with a roundtable mentor. After the first round is complete, participants can choose to remain with their current roundtable mentor or meet with a different mentor for additional networking opportunities.
We would encourage you to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity for one-on-one time with leaders in the cancer research field by attending this sessions during the Annual Meeting! If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
