The Young Investigators Research Forum consists of didactic presentations, workshops, and small group sessions covering scientific writing and stewardship, opportunities for funding and collaboration, navigating the academic environment, and networking. As active participants, early career investigators will have the opportunity to present their current research, provide feedback on each other’s research proposals and review a grant.

The Young Investigators Research Forum is held in-person with webinars done prior to and after the 3-day in-person meeting at Bethesda, Maryland. The program is subject to change as plans for the research forum are finalized.
