SIRS EXPERT Classes

SIRS EXPERT classes are a series of exclusive virtual events for SIRS members who are early-career researchers (ECR) to access and interact with eminent scientists in the SIRS community as role models. This series will provide a unique space for networking, mentoring and inspiration for our SIRS ECRs, and will cover a series of topics critical for career development, delivered by leading figures in our field.
