Junior Investigator Award Program

In order to foster the development of young scientists and technologists in the various areas of ionizing radiation, CIRMS developed a Junior Investigator Award program in 1999, which was guided by then-First Vice President, X. George Xu of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Since then, CIRMS strongly encourages and supports the participation of students and young researchers at the annual meeting and the presentation of their research during the working group sessions or as posters.

CIRMS will proudly continue its tradition in supporting outstanding young investigators to attend and present their work at the 28th CIRMS VIRTUAL 2021 meeting by offering awards to a selected number of applicants that submit their abstracts by the deadline.

Winners will also receive one year’s complimentary membership in CIRMS.

All presentations will be included in the meeting summary and posted on the CIRMS web site.

The 2021 meeting will focus on Radiation in a Digital and Virtual World.
