The ECR Committee will organize and run young investigator sessions and events to create opportunities for young investigators to build relationships within academia, the corporate world and publishing. Opportunities may include, panels, networking and other activities at the annual meeting, regional meetings and other times throughout the year. The ECR Committee is open to all ICIS student/postdoc members as well as Early Career members who have received a Ph.D or M.D. within the previous 10 -15 years.

All those interested in  participating on this committee are encouraged to reach out to the committee members and if you will be at Cytokines 2023 in Athens please join us at the ECR Networking Event.  We would like to invite you to the Young Investigators Career Networking Event which will be held in the Horizon Hall on the Roof Garden Floor (9th floor) on Tuesday, October 17th, from 8:15-9:45 PM. This will be an opportunity to connect with colleagues and inspire a new generation of cytokine biologists. Come enjoy a night on the roof while sharing food and drinks.
