Balancing clinical work with academia

Hi everyone, my name’s Jess and I’m writing today’s blog balancing clinical work with academia. This is an important issue for many SIOP young investigators, as many of us have clinical backgrounds and have then developed an academic interest which we try to balance alongside our work with patients. These challenges often vary based on the demands of your clinical role and on whether your research is lab-based or more clinical.

Who´s behind the Blog?

The SIOP YI-NET Blog is a platform where young investigators worldwide can interact and share

experiences and ideas with one another. Discussion topics focus on issues regarding conducting

research or clinical work in pediatric oncology as well as work-life balance and other practical issues that

Please meet the young investigators of SIOP who are facilitating the Blog!

A Guide to Twitter for Young Investigators

Hi Everyone! I’m Vicky and today I’ve written a rough guide for anyone thinking of using Twitter.

LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook – the list of platforms by which we as young investigators can share our research continues to grow, but which one should you use? Much like learning to write scientifically and limit our natural tendency to waffle and digress, social media is also a unique vocation. Personally as a lab-based postdoctoral fellow, Twitter is by far my favourite medium for sharing my work and discussing issues more widely related to science, such as policy and politics.
