Opportunities for Young Professionals
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE PROGRAMMES ARE NOT AVAILABLE LIVE ANY MORE
Sunday December 13, 2020 7:45-8:45
A breakfast was organized to facilitate an informal networking meeting between Young Professionals (under 40 years old) and Transfusion Medicine experts. The breakfast session was held online.
“One of the highlights of the congress was meeting mentors and being able to chat with them at the Young Professionals breakfast” K. Winter
Although we were not able to meet each other in person, the ISBT Fun Run was organised again. All ISBT2020 delegates were invited to show their sporty side and red active wear. Photos were shared on social media with #ISBT2020.
Harold Gunson Fellowship awardees are young professionals from all over the globe who work in the field of transfusion medicine, are 40 years of age or younger and have an abstract accepted for the ISBT 2020. The winners of this award received complimentary registration for the congress.
Traditionally, the scientific programme of the past ISBT congresses included a Young Professionals Scientific Session, where a selection of young speakers (who are under 35 years old and submitted abstracts) had a chance to present their works. However, the organisers of this congress felt it would be a better recognition for these talented young professionals if they would be integrated in the sessions of their topics. Therefore the Young Professionals Scientific Session was missing from the ISBT 2020 congress.
Please see here the list of this year's selected Young Professionals. The presentations are available on-demand hrought the congress platform until March 31, 2020. Congratulations to the selected speakers!
