The Young Investigators Society

The Young Investigators Society (YIS) at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is an academic association of research trainees in the basic science programs at Northwell Health. Members are graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows and junior faculty – any Feinstein Institute researcher in these training positions is welcome to join the group.

The Young Investigators meets once a week at the Institute to engage in a variety of career related activities. They often invite internal or external experts to discuss inspiring research or topics surrounding career development. They also engage in team-building activities and explore different career paths and methods to improve as a scientist. Or, they simply enjoy lunch together!

The ultimate goal of the Young Investigators is twofold – to provide an environment that is designed to promote networking and foster career development and to enhance the visibility of the Institute through the success of its research trainees.

Scientists and physician’s in a research training position at Northwell Health are invited to join the YIS by becoming a member on the Molecular Medicine website and joining the group, Young Investigators Society At The Feinstein Institute. Questions about eligibility should be emailed to one of the group’s officers.
