Molina, MD, PhD, will focus on the importance of, and improvements made in, mentoring young investigators. The plenary session will feature presentations on research findings by leading BIRCWH Scholars. A special Legacy of Leadership presentation will be delivered by Claire Sterk, PhD. The meeting will conclude with an informal virtual networking session.
