Early-Career Investigators

Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and new investigators are an integral part of The Obesity Society (TOS) and comprise the next generation of researchers. Established obesity researchers value our opinions, and regularly find time to inspire and guide us to refine and tailor our work to focus on current issues and include the latest technologies and techniques. As an early-career investigator, feel free to take advantage of the resources available to you in this section of the website.


Early-Career Investigator Committee (ECIC)

Composed of students, post-docs, and junior faculty members of The Obesity Society, the ECIC organizes activities at meetings and fosters network building with other early career investigators and senior researchers.

Grant Review Program

The Early-Career Investigator Grant Review Program is a new initiative led by the Early-Career Investigator Committee that will provide a forum for early-career investigators to receive mentorship from senior investigators on their grant proposals.The program will be launched at Obesity 2010, the 28th Annual Meeting for the Obesity Society in San Diego, CA at the Early-Career Investigator Forum.
