The purpose of the Trainee Symposia Series is to foster scientific investigation, professional education and career development in sleep research and academic sleep medicine. Trainee Day offers young researchers and scientists an unparalleled opportunity to glean knowledge and experience from established and renowned professionals on current topics in the field of sleep and circadian research.

Immediately following the Trainee Symposia Series scientific program, the SRS will present a Trainee Reception, DataBlitz and Career Development Fair. Here trainees will find representatives from top institutions ready and willing to spend time with them on an individual basis answering questions about training and career options in the field of sleep and circadian research. The reception also gives trainees an opportunity to network with each other and with senior investigators in a more informal atmosphere.

Registration for SLEEP 2011 and the Trainee Symposia Series is now open. Only Trainees who pre-register for the event will be able to attend. Registration for the Trainee Symposia Series closes on April 27, 2011.
