The SIOP Young Investigator NETwork (SIOP-YINET) represents the interests of young investigators in the field of paediatric oncology. SIOP-YINET provides a platform for young investigators to develop research and scientific skills, and facilitates an international research network with other young investigators in paediatric oncology.
In close collaboration with the SIOP Executive board, SIOP-YINET aims to:
- Integrate the interests of young investigators within the SIOP objectives
- Provide an online platform for networking and collaboration amongst international young investigators
- Reach out to other young investigators to promote active involvement of young investigators in SIOP
- Develop and implement sessions in the SIOP congresses directed to young investigators
Following a pilot programme based in Latin America, the SIOP-YI mentorship scheme is open for applications.
Mentorship is an important factor in professional development and provides benefits for both the mentee and the mentor. We have been working in collaboration with the American Society of Hematology and the Children’s Oncology Group to develop an international and inclusive mentorship programme for Young Investigators from all backgrounds.
If you are a young investigator from clinical or non-clinical background and you think you would benefit from mentorship please email email@example.com for more information and an application pack.
If you are an established academic or consultant, and would like to mentor a young investigator, please use the same email address to get in touch. We try to carefully match mentors and mentees to ensure that expectations are met and the relationship is beneficial. Each pair retains a named contact within the SIOP-YI mentorship committee to facilitate and maintain the relationship.
