An Overview of the Young Investigator Education Day in Lyon

Hello, my name is Gemma. I am a Young Investigator (YI) board member and Chair of the YI Education Day committee for the Lyon Congress. This week on the blog, I am delighted to give you all an overview of our speakers for our 5th SIOP YI Education day, which will be held on Wednesday 23rd October 2019.
The theme for our first session is careers and is titled “Failure is Success in Progress”. Our first speaker is Professor Kathy Pritchard-Jones who is doing our careers talk this year: “How I built a successful research career-learning from my failures.” Professor Pritchard-Jones is the SIOP President Elect, and we are extremely grateful that she is taking time out of her busy schedule to support YI. Professor Pritchard-Jones will be followed by our second speakerDr Adam Esbenshade, who will talk about successful academic interviews, and present the results of a survey of Children’s Oncology Group (COG) and SIOP members.
After the coffee break, we have a YI, PODC and Nurse joint session…
