The Junior Faculty Research Career Development Session is a great opportunity for junior faculty and research fellows to meet each other and to receive advice on career development from mid-career and senior faculty.  Our speaker this year will be Amy JH Kind, MD, PhD, who received the 2019 Yoshikawa Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievement in Clinical Investigation.  Dr. Kind will discuss her career journey and share advice about lessons learned along the way. This will be followed by roundtable discussions focusing on different stages of academic career development.  Discussions will be facilitated by mid-career and senior research faculty and will cover a variety of topics, including applying for a job, navigating the mentor-mentee relationship, securing grant funding, and balancing research with other roles.
