YIM 2021

The annual Young Investigatorsā€™ 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.
