2018 marks the tenth year of Young Investigator Meetings (YIMs) that have been bringing together young scientists who will lead Indian science in the coming years. Similar to previous editions, this year too, we hope for YIM to be a groundswell for participants to make friendships, start collaborations, and share ideas for developing their laboratories. The meeting schedule, however will be structured on a moderately different template. The participants will be YIs from previous years' YIMs and participation is by invite only.

The four day event, besides putting up an exciting scientific program of research talks by few YIs and posters by all YIs along with an assortment of interdisciplinary scientific talks by eminent scientists, will also witness four major themes for deliberations, to challenge the stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue, to eventually compile YIs' perspectives and come up with a clear outline for creating meaningful white papers that can be recommended for adoption by appropriate bodies.

Included in the themes for breakout sessions during the meeting are:

  • Best practices for recruitment and mentoring of YIs in India
  • Sharing of resources and collaborations for better science
  • PhD and postdoctoral training in India
  • Future of Indian Biological Science

Registrations for YIM 2018 are now closed.
