We are delighted to announce that the first SIOP Europe Annual Meeting will be held on 20-25 May 2019 in Prague, Czech Republic.
I am a MD, with a PhD is cancer genetics and I was wanting to tell you a little about some of my views on why you should, or should not do a PhD. This is especially relevant for YIs with a medical background, whose core training is already so long and intense. Still, you might be considering this PhD option and I hope this post can be of guidance to you.
Hi readers! My name is Francianne and I am a Ph.D. student in Brazil. Today I will discuss the particularities of epidemiologic research in my country and share the main findings of Brazilian studies on the epidemiology of childhood cancer.
Hi everyone! I’m Gemma, I’m a YI Board member and co-chair of the Blog working committee. Today I’m delighted to introduce Francianne Andrade, a PhD candidate from Brazil and a new YI committee member. Here’s what Francianne has to say about the importance of doing research in a developing country:
My name is Francianne and I am a Ph.D. student in Brazil. I am a graduate in Biomedical Sciences. Today I would like to share about my difficulties and the gratifying experience in a research career in a developing country. I am part of the team for molecular diagnosis and study of hematological diseases, specifically identifying genetic abnormalities as part of the characterization of acute leukemias in children.
Perspectives on Mental Health from a Researcher Working on a Project with Children with a Poor Prognosis
Hi Everyone! My name is Gemma, I’m a researcher in Paediatric Palliative Care and a SIOP YI Board member. As part of our mental health month, today I am posting on behalf of my colleague Dr Ellen M Henderson, who shares her experience of working on a longitudinal study of decision making with children with brain tumours.
Hi everyone! Today I am posting on behalf of previous SIOP YI-NET member Kathryn Demanelis (USA), check out her post about how she balances her diverse research interests:
I am not sure if I am the best person to write about how to balance research interests since I am generally interested in everything. My dissertation research examined two broad topics: descriptive pediatric cancer epidemiology in Southeast Asia and chronic cadmium exposure and its effects on the epigenome. Both of these projects were based in Thailand and focused on vulnerable populations. Otherwise, these projects are quite different and involve very different datasets, types of analyses, and research questions.
