Virtual Joint NCI and NIDDK Staff Scientist and Staff Clinician Professional Development Day

October 2, 2020


The CCR/NCI Professional Development Committee of the CCR Staff Scientist Staff Clinician Organization conducts an annual one-day meeting addressing the professional development for the Staff Scientist and Staff Clinician community. This year for the first time we will be having a virtual Joint meeting with SS/SC from NIDDK. This should add an exciting dimension to the meeting. Welcome NIDDK SS/SC!
The Meeting will begin with opening remarks from CCR Director, Dr. Tom Misteli, Ph.D. and the NIDDK Scientific Director Michael W. Krause, Ph.D.
We have an exciting agenda that touches on a wide range of topics from inspirational talk by Lawrence Levy (the former CFO of PIXAR) to “Meet your Alumni”! 

The “Meet your Alumni” will be an interactive session where our attendees will have an opportunity to meet with Alumni in “virtual rooms.” Each Alumni will host a virtual room and 6-8 people will join them. This smaller breakout rooms will facilitate a more interactive experience.

We have invited Scott Morgan back and he will be holding a workshop on “Discovering Potential & Expanding Vision.” Keep paper and pen on hand for this interactive workshop.

Representatives from both NCI and NIDDK will provide information on all you need to know for the all-important Quadrennial Review!
