SIOP YI Collaborative Event

For the fourth consecutive year the SIOP Young Investigator Network invites you to attend the YI Collaborative Event, sponsored by Texas Children’s Hospital Global Hope Program. The Collaborative Event provides an informal venue for congress participants to meet and socialize with young investigators from across the globe. This year’s Event will occur on Saturday November 17 and will offer food, drink, and an opportunity to experience some of Kyoto’s local culture. The YI Collaborative Event is free, but space is limited. Please keep an eye on upcoming email, YI Blog, and YI Social Media postings for additional details and information on how to register. We hope to see you there!

SIOP YI Blog & Social Media

Our group is working hard in the SIOP YI Blog with fresh and interesting posts aimed to young researchers. Our latest topics are “Am I a YI?” about what makes a SIOP Young Investigator and our activities, “To tweet or not to tweet” where we share nice social media tips for academics and “Linking patients and families with clinical trials: the U-Link initiative”, a French recent initiative entirely dedicated to pediatric oncology, aimed to inform parents, families and health professionals about open clinical trials.
