The annual Young Investigators’ Meeting (YIM) brings together exceptional young and senior scientists, heads of institutes, and representatives from funding agencies for discussions and interactions focusing on science and careers in a broad range of disciplines of biology. Since its inception in 2009, the YIM has established its brand in the life-science fraternity. The meeting has created a vibrant atmosphere for exchanging ideas for improving science in India and catalysing friendships and collaborations between young Indian scientists.
YIM 2021 virtual meeting, which will proceed for 3 days, will provide an opportunity for a larger cohort of participants to experience all the flavours and components that a traditional YIM meeting offers. While eminent researchers and administrators invited as mentors and speakers will share their experiences in building a career in scientific research, there will also be special talks on topics that are broadly relevant to everyone interested in science. Besides, there will be a series of panel discussions on topics including mentorship, setting up a research group, navigating the post-COVID world, funding opportunities and research assessment. All the participants will have the opportunity to network with mentors, speakers and peers during the meeting.
