Early Career Committee

Mission Statement

After decades of producing a prestigious international conference, the SMRA board has recently created the SMRA Early Career Committee (ECC). The SMRA ECC is committed to: (i) stimulating the involvement and free exchange of ideas of early career investigators within the SMRA community, (ii) giving our early career investigators an improved experience in organizing, moderating, and presenting at a rigorous scientific seminar, (iii) providing a line of direct communication with the SMRA board to improve upon the early career investigator experience, and (iv) generating life-long professional and personal connections through social media and planned networking events.
