Young Investigator Spotlight Application

The Young Investigator Spotlight (YIS) is an opportunity for principal investigators who have had an independent position for 2-7 years to present a 25-minute spotlight talk during APAN. We wish to particularly encourage applications from women, BIPOC, and other historically minoritized faculty.
To apply for the YIS, upload a PDF containing the following:

  • 1-page cover letter describing your research program and its relevance to APAN
  • Title and 250-word max abstract for your proposed 25-minute talk
  • CV
  • Contact information for at least one reference

Note: Application to the YIS does not preclude submission of a regular abstract detailing the more specific nature of the research results. However, if the young investigator is chosen for the Spotlight, such regular abstracts would not also be chosen for oral presentation or highlighted teaser. Regular abstracts should be submitted here.
Feel free to contact with any questions before applying.

The YIS application deadline is July 20, 2023
