Junior Investigator Meeting - Overview


The 2022 National Cancer Institute (NCI) Junior Investigator (JI) Meeting will be held virtually on August 25-26, 2022. This two-day meeting is a collaborative effort of NCI program groups Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC), Physical Sciences-Oncology Network (PS-ON), Big Data Scientist Enhancement Program (BD-STEP), Metastasis Research Network (MetNet), and Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET).

This 2-day meeting will bring together junior investigators (defined as late stage graduate students, postdocs, and early career faculty) representing experimental and systems biologists, physical scientists, big data scientists, and computational modelers who build and apply novel tools to better understand cancer. Registration is free. In addition to a keynote lecture, panel discussions, and workshops, there will be oral talks and poster presentations by the trainees. This meeting aims to provide opportunities for junior scientists to meet fellow researchers, showcase their work, foster collaborations, and generate synergy between individuals with diverse skills and shared research interests.
