In addition to managing their daily lab work, young researchers are increasingly facing strenuous hurdles, such as maintaining a work-life balance, unclear career prospects, publication pressure, and writing blockades. Organized by HUPO’s Early Career Researcher Initiative in partnership with the European Proteomics Association’s Young Proteomics Investigators Club, the mentoring sessions extend the scope of HUPO ReCONNECT 2021 from pure science and technology to the topics that indirectly affect our research. 

All Mentoring Sessions are accessible via the virtual platform in the Education Sessions & Recordings | Education Sessions Auditorium.

The ECR Networking Hour is an open forum to bridge the digital, cultural, and continental gaps so that early-stage researchers can meet, share, and create bridges for future collaboration. Participants are encouraged to engage with their cameras and join in both the ice-breaker and proteomics-related networking.
