The Young Investigators Research Forum 2024 will have a kick-off virtual meeting in March 2024, an in-person meeting on April 17-19, 2024 in Bethesda, MD, and additional virtual meetings in May 2024.
The program will provide accepted applicants the guidance, tactics, and strategies to better position early career investigators for a successful career in circadian and sleep research by:
- Understanding how to build a successful career in sleep research, including how to foster collaborations and develop mentorship relationships.
- Understanding the policies and various mechanisms for sleep research funding.
- Gain insight on the grant peer review structure and process.
- Further develop specific aims for a grant proposal.
The Young Investigators Research Forum will provide an opportunity for collegial interaction among early career investigators and established senior investigators across the broad spectrum of basic, translational, clinical and population sleep and circadian science, as well as with scientific and program officers from various funding agencies.
The preliminary agenda for the Young Investigators Research Forum 2024 can be found here and is subject to change.
