Forums offer insights for early-career investigators


Attendees chat during the Career Development Forum at #SABCS2018.

The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium® is not only the leading scientific conference on the diagnosis and treatment of premalignant breast disease and breast cancer, there are outstanding opportunities for young scientists, clinicians and investigators to gain vital career insights.

Early career scientists, medical students and residents will have the opportunity to participate in a Career Development Forum Wednesday, Dec. 11 and Thursday, Dec. 12. The forum is being co-chaired by Rachel Schiff, PhD, of the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston; Eric P. Winer, MD of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston; and Douglas Yee, MD of the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

Topics for the forums are still under development, but the plan is to host career roundtables on Wednesday, Dec. 11 and two concurrent events on Thursday, Dec. 12. The Thursday events would include a panel question and answer session, and one-on-one mentoring sessions.

Space in each session is limited and reserved solely for early-career scientists, defined as graduate students, postdoctoral or clinical fellows, or medical students and residents. All must be registered for SABCS® 2019, Dec. 10-14 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
