13th Young Investigators Symposium

The YIS is organized specifically for young investigators (PhD students, post-docs) and young physicians in training doing research within the field of lung diseases in the Netherlands. This symposium gives the opportunity to start/broaden your network in the Netherlands, to practice presenting and to discuss data, and of course to be inspired by the seminars given by (inter)national Keynote speakers from the ‘Lung Field”. Obviously, starting PIs that are interested in the symposium are more than welcome to join this day.

The masterclasses are for junior researchers (e.g. PhD students) and will allow you to present your research to a small group of peers and receive feedback from one of the expert. 

Please submit your abstract (maximum 300 words, 1 figure) before November 1st 2021. If you do not have any results from your study yet, just make an abstract covering the background, hypothesis and methods of your study. Preliminary data are also acceptable. All abstracts will be accepted, so you will not receive a confirmation. Upon arrival and registration on November 12th, you will receive an overview of participants of each masterclass. 

The presentation will be projected on a TV screen during the Masterclass and each participant has 5 minutes to explain his/her study, followed by a short discussion (5-10 minutes). Your presentation should be prepared in PowerPoint in landscape format. The presentation should be limited to 5 slides maximum and should be structured as: introduction, results (max. 3 figures, 1 figure per slide) and discussion. If you do not have any results from your study yet, just present the background, hypothesis and methods of your study.
