TERMIS and Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. Present Award for Best Young Investigator Research Articles in Tissue Engineering
Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS)
Student involvement is an important essential component of TERMIS. SYIS provides a platform for the "next generation" of scientists and engineers in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to interact. SYIS aims to further the professional and scientific development of its members. The TERMIS definition for a Student member is any individual, who is engaged as a full-time graduate or undergraduate, in a university or college program and is actively involved in research in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Young Investigators are defined as persons who are employed by an academic institution in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, who have been awarded their doctoral degree within the past 3 years or are working as researchers and have less than seven years research experience following masters degree. In addition, young investigators are not holding an appointment as a faculty or academic staff in a university/research institute.
TERMIS-EU SYIS activities Davos 26th June- 30th June 2017
Student / Young Investigator Co-Chairing
The TERMIS-EU SYIS chapter provides the opportunity for students and young investigators to serve as co-chairs for scientific sessions at the 2017 TERMIS EU Chapter Meeting in Davos. This provides a unique platform for students and young investigators to co-chair sessions with leading scientists and engage in scientific discussions.
More information coming soon, after abstract review
Student Presentation Awards
SYIS commits to recognise excellence in research by giving awards to participating researchers who demonstrate research excellence through their talent, knowledge and expertise in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The section covers several awards under the following categories:
- Oral Presentation Awards: Three awards will be given for presentations given by SYIS eligible members (Students and Young Investigators within three years of PhD awarded) based on their rankings by the judging committee.
- Rapid Fire Presentation Awards: Three awards will be given for presentations given by SYIS eligible members (Students and Young Investigators within three years of PhD awarded) based on their rankings by the judging committee.
- Poster Presentation Awards: Three awards will be given for presentations given by SYIS eligible members (Students and Young Investigators within three years of PhD awarded) based on their rankings by the judging committee.
Judging criteria will include scientific excellence, time-keeping (presenting within/on the defined time period), question answering, and overall presentation and scientific discussion. More information coming soon.
SYIS Social Night
Date and location to be decided
The TERMIS-EU SYIS chapter is organizing a Social Night open for students and young investigators. This event is an opportunity to meet friends and other young scientists while enjoying snacks and beverages. We also welcome your ideas for future plans of SYIS and how to get more involved in the section.
More information coming soon.
SYIS Meet the Mentor
Thursday, 29th June 2017 12:15-13:45, Pischa/Parsenn
This event will give students and young investigators the opportunity to meet scientific leaders in the field to ask the most burning questions; from the state of current academic research environment to useful advice for a successful career. The format of this session is informal in a more relaxed atmosphere, where students can engage in fruitful discussions with their peers and mentors, about their research interests and aspirations.
We are introducing a brand new and exciting event ‘SYIS Debates’. The idea is to bring together the younger minds in the field of tissue engineering to critically advocate the pros/cons of emerging trends or existing challenges in the field of tissue engineering. This is an excellent platform for SYIS members to voice constructive arguments and express their deep understanding of the field in front of key opinion leaders and experts. The competing teams will be fighting for the TERMIS-EU 2017 debating title and a cash award.
How many topics? There will be two topics this year (To be announced soon)
How long will the debate last per topic? 30 minutes
How to participate? A three-member team will be invited from the SYIS community (you can team-up with your colleagues from your department or friends you have made over the years at TERMIS meetings). One team in favour and against will be chosen based on a 300 words abstract submitted to the SYIS judges. More information will be made available soon.
Run-Time (90 minutes)
Topic: A topic will be assigned to deliver a statement In Favour/Against (9 minutes/team) Presentation slides will not be allowed.
Cross fire: Each team will have the opportunity to oppose arguments and deliver a rebuttal speech (6 minutes/team)
Decision: A decision will be made through an audience vote at the end of the session.
