The Young Investigators Society

The Young Investigators Society at the Feinstein Institute is an academic association of research trainees in the basic science programs of North Shore-LIJ Health System. 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.
