Children's Oncology Group's 2023 blueprint for research: Young investigators

the COG Young Investigators Committee

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Children's Oncology Group (COG) Young Investigators (YI) Committee is an administrative committee in which liaisons represent 30 COG committees, and was created to facilitate the integration of YIs into the organization, and prepare them for future COG leadership roles. The mentorship program has mentored over 400 YIs since 2005 and currently has 175 active participants. The COG YI Master Roster is a database YIs can join, which allows them to post their interests and accomplishments to COG leadership, and 321 YIs have already joined this list. The YI Committee has held virtual symposia designed to describe how COG operates and provide guidance on how YIs can reach their goals; over 300 YIs have attended these since 2021 and have consistently rated them as helpful. Through these and other elements of the program, the YI Committee remains committed to developing a future pipeline of new investigators.
