Dear SIT Members,

As always this year’s Annual Radiation Research Society meeting was full of interesting talks and exciting new discoveries. I hope everyone got the chance to catch up with old colleagues and meet some new ones. For me, the annual meeting is always a chance to be reinvigorated by the future of our field and reenergized about the prospects of my own research, so for those who could not make it to Cancun this year, we hope to see you in Chicago next year!

There was also great feedback from the SIT workshop which included two wonderful talks from current SIT members, Eliedonna Cacao and Ryne DeBo. Following their successes, we will strive to further increase SIT participation in future SIT workshops through talks or activities such as the speed networking session or short thesis pitches. As SITs, being able to communicate your work in an effective and concise manner is important skill to have as you advance in your careers and transition into ECI’s, and while some of these activities may seem awkward at first, practice does make it easier!

At the workshop, we also had speakers that covered an array of subjects from funding opportunities, career transition to designing good experimental set-up. For those who were not able to attend or would like a copy of the presentations (Dr. Allen, Dr. Cohen-Dicarlo and Dr. Mendonca) they can be found here along with other valuable resources.

As we strive to improve the workshop and make it more engaging we would really appreciate your feedback on how we can make it better, address your needs, and answer any questions and concerns as SITs. Please take the time to fill out the workshop survey with any comments or suggestions for future workshops.

At the SIT Luncheon we welcomed our new SIT committee chair, Pavel Bláha, and our other new committee members. As the incoming vice-chair, I look forward to working with Pavel and the rest of committee members to serve the SIT community. We would also like to thank our outgoing SIT committee members and especially our outgoing SIT committee chair, Dr. Mary-Keara Boss for their hard work and service to the SIT community.

For those of you who would like to have a more active role within RRS, and represent your fellow SIT members on the SIT committee, we have great news for you - we are recruiting! If you are interested please send a letter of intent (include your scientific background and why you are interested in being part of the SIT committee) to the SIT chair, Pavel Bláha by November 17th.
Finally don’t forget to send us all your recent publications!
