One of the roles of the Vanguard Committee is to make sure that IXA 2019 becomes a memorable and wonderful experience for every trainee in attendance. Here is an overview of what the Vanguard Committee has planned.
We have set aside a dedicated area at the venue where mentees and mentors can meet during the Welcome Reception. IXA councilors and other well-established professionals in the field will offer 15-20 minutes of their time to meet with trainees one-on-one. This is a fantastic opportunity to get some hands-on career advice. Come prepared with your questions to get the most out of it. We are sure that you will feel inspired.
This activity is an open discussion forum led by Chris Burlak, Wayne Hawthorne, Andrea Bähr and Rita Bottino and is open to trainees of all levels. Discussions will include how to manage a post-doc career, publishing successful manuscripts etc.
