Get Involved with SITC
SITC provides students, fellows and young investigators with the following opportunities to become involved and have a voice within the Society:
Early Career Scientists (ECS) Committee
The ECS Committee's mission is to promote career development and provide access to the support and resources early career scientists need to succeed. To achieve this mission, the ECS Committee partners with SITC leadership and uses their knowledge and expertise to address the needs of early career scientists in the fields of immunology and biological therapy.
Members of the ECS Committee include students, post doctoral fellows-in-training 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. Get more information about the ECS Committee here.
Early Career Scientist representation is integrated throughout the breadth of SITC committees and task forces, thus offering opportunities for young investigators to influence progress in the field of cancer immunotherapy through service to the Society.
