Dear SIT Members,

We are very pleased to announce that Pavel Bláha will be our next Vice Chair of the SIT Committee! As the RRS (Radiation Research Society)/CRH (Conference on Radiation & Health) joint conference looms, we would like to introduce you to a series of exciting events starting with the pre-meeting SIT (view schedule) and the Early Stage Radiation Investigators (ESRI) Workshops on October 15th, 2016. It will be wonderful to make and establish your career plans and goals with beautiful Hawaiian sceneries. In addition, every attendee can learn and embrace scientific discoveries and technological breakthroughs by meeting influential speakers and seeing exclusive exhibitions in lectures, symposia and poster sessions. What's more, you are welcome to extraordinarily fun debates, informative business forum, enjoyable receptions and karaoke. Let's all get ready to join these rewarding events and promote multidisciplinary collaboration in radiation research, health and safety.

Personally, this will be my fifth time to attend the annual RRS meeting. The past meetings held in different cities have amazed me with their sparkling heat. Countless hours of researchers' hard work moulded timeless results and precious achievements for the increase of knowledge and wellbeing. With great admiration of the noble work, I have been motivated and hence invite you to support the Society's events beyond ones' pursuit of research excellence. Through everybody's participation and dedication, the 62nd Annual International Meeting of the RRS is believed to continue sparkling.

For more information about the RRS annual meeting and SIT Workshop, please refer to the links provided in the following section, upcoming conferences and courses. Hope to see you all on the Big Island.

"Your job is... to take what you do now and make it better, to help people better."

Norm Coleman has dedicated his life to the betterment of our society through science. His unique perspective combines over four decades of experience as a scientist with his deeply held sense of altruism. Norm's message is simple, yet compelling: In these ever-changing times, there will always be a need for scientists who can improve upon our work to help future generations, and to that end, mentorship continues to play a vital role. He inspires young investigators to continue focusing on their professional goals while considering how these goals benefit others. This interview also helps to reaffirm the convictions of established scientists, and bolster enthusiasm among their research teams. VIEW VIDEO
