Young Investigator Activities

The Early Career Scientists (ECS) Committee was established to partner with SITC leadership to address the needs of early career scientists in the fields of immunology and biological therapy.

Members of the Committee include students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career professionals in academia, industry, and regulatory agencies. ECS Committee members participate in many activities and continually seek opportunities for early career scientists to advance SITC’s mission and programming. The main goal of the committee is to leverage society relationships and resources to enhance the career development of outstanding young investigators in the field.
