Why belong to ISEH? New Investigators share their thoughts

Meet the New Investigator Committee members and their top reasons for being involved with ISEH. We asked them to share their thoughts and experiences as a part of our society. ISEH has a unique and special focus on new investigators, students and post docs, and will give you the opportunity to connect to the right people and enhance your training. We would love to hear your experience through our social media, visit our sites and let us know why you belong to ISEH on Facebook, Twitter and Linked In.

"I am a member of ISEH because I feel like my voice is heard. The society really cares about junior investigators and our interest. I never miss the ISEH annual meeting because I know great science will be presented and I will get a chance to speak with both established and junior colleagues one-on-one. The atmosphere at the meeting is so welcoming and natural, it is easy to approach even big name PIs during one of the many social events”

Teresa Bowman (USA) 

"This is quite possibly one of the friendliest meetings I have ever been to. The opportunities for networking are outstanding and the emphasis on getting young investigators participating at the meeting means that it's easy for graduate students and post-docs to have meaningful interactions with world-renowned professors.”

Michael Milssom (Germany) 

"I have attended the conference for 3 consecutive years. I have found someone from another lab, working on something quite similar to what I research. This was at first frightening, but then turned exciting since I was able to discuss my research with other researchers and share perspectives. The compact size and the friendly atmosphere of ISEH allows young researchers to go forward and network. I feel that PIs are more approachable at ISEH than other meetings.

They also have very nice social events. I was shocked to see senior PIs dance. I'm Japanese. I didn't imagine that my senior PI would appreciate club music and dancing. But it seems that the event is a delight for many people in my country.”

Ayako Ishizu (Japan) 

"ISEH is a great community with plenty of networking opportunities for young investigators. I met many people with similar interests at the annual meetings, it is always at a great location and the perfect size to have a few intense days of science and networking”.

Peter van Galen (Canada) 

"I particularly like the ISEH meetings for two reasons apart from the great science presented there. Firstly, it is small enough to interact with everyone from PhD students to senior professors, and secondly there is a great focus on new scientists”.

Sofie Singbrant Soderberg (Sweden) 

"First, it is easy to find people to discuss ideas with at the ISEH meeting compared to some of the larger hematology meetings. Second,everyone in the society is very familiar with each other’s work so little background explanation is needed and the insights are very deep. Andalmost every poster and talk is interesting to my field and has something that can be applied to my research”.

Grant Challen (USA) 

"ISEH brings a friendly group of scientists who are willing to chat and share ideas. Fantastic opportunities for New Investigators to meet with some of the leaders in their field. There is also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people from around the world in an intimate, relaxed friendly environment at the annual ISEH conference. ISEH is a place where you can easily develop long-lasting friendships and fruitful collaborations.The conference is all about networking, hearing about hematological research that is at the leading edge and having an enjoyable time.”

Sarah Ellis (Australia) 

"ISEH is an international community of blood specialists offering unique opportunities for networking and scientific collaborations for young and established scientists.The meeting allows for a a good ratio between PIs/students-postdocs, making it a great opportunity to approach the ''big names'' in the field”.

Konstantinos Kokkaliaris (Germany) 

"My story at ISEH began with the new millennia (29th meeting at Tampa, FL) and along with a challenge, it was my first international meeting and the first time I gave a talk. I learned three important lessons at my first meeting: to discuss your project with experts in your field, to meet and put a face on the authors of the papers I was reading, and to see those authors dancing the "chicken dance” at the social event. My former mentor introduced me to ISEH and I hope I can soon bring my own students.”
