The OHBM Student and Postdoc SIG ( provides a community of shared interests for OHBM students and postdocs (trainees). This year, we would like to cordially invite you to our career development event during the OHBM annual meeting in Singapore, themed The Secret Behind Success. This event is supported by OHBM and Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN).

The symposium is an open event dedicated to early career researchers. Our first speaker, Thomas Nichols, PhD (University of Oxford), will introduce us to his experience with research and industry, and explain how to get the best out of both worlds. Next, OHBM Young Investigator for 2017, Lucina Uddin, PhD (University of Miami) will be discussing ways in which scientists can use rejection as a learning and teaching tool to stay motivated and productive in the face of challenges.

The symposium will be followed by Lunch with Mentors. Trainees (students and postdocs) will have the opportunity to chat and engage in informal conversations with mentors over a 45 minute catered lunch (~8-12 trainees per mentor). The aim of this event is to inspire and motivate the next generation of OHBM researchers, giving them an invaluable and rare opportunity to learn from the experience of the invited mentors. The list of confirmed mentors includes:

Lucina Uddin, University of Miami
Thomas Nichols, University of Oxford
Michael Greicius, Stanford University
Irene Tracey, University of Oxford
Guillen Fernandez, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre
Alex Fornito, Monash University
Svenja Caspers, Heinrich Heine University Duesseldorf
Nina Preuss, NITRC Washington DC

As we have a limited number of seats for the Lunch with Mentors, registration is necessary.

The venue:
Time: Tuesday 19th June, 12:00pm (lunch starting at 12:45pm)
Location: Suntec Convention Centre (Room 324)
