The annual Young Investigators’ Meeting (YIM) brings together an eclectic mix of India’s best early-career life-science researchers, post-doctoral fellows, reputed Indian and international scientists, administrators of institutions, funding agency representatives and science policy makers for 5 days of discussions and interactions focusing on science and careers in science.
The program features talks, posters and panel discussions where participants have discussions on a wide variety of topics ranging from picking research problems, publishing, personnel management and mentorship. Senior scientists describe their own scientific journeys providing inspirational as well as amusing anecdotes about their experiences with establishing scientific careers. Interactions with early-career investigators allows post-docs to get a first-hand account of finding jobs and setting up labs in India.
The YIM series aims to build a community of well-networked biologists by allowing young Indian scientists from different regions and institutions to establish friendships, initiate collaborations, and learn from peer-to-peer mentoring.
