The ECOG-ACRIN Young Investigator Symposium is a professional mentoring event that takes place at the semiannual ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group meeting each November. The symposium, inaugurated in 2001 by the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), introduces young investigators to ECOG-ACRIN, providing them with the opportunity to give a 10-minute oral presentation of their research project and respond to questions. Through this event, young investigators meet experienced investigators, learn about potential research opportunities early in their career, and furnish the ECOG-ACRIN community with new research approaches. Awardees do not receive research grant funding; however, ECOG-ACRIN covers travel and lodging costs associated with attendance at the group meeting.
