Working Group

The Sleep and Respiratory Neurobiology (SRN) Early Career Professionals Working Group (ECP WG) is here to help research (PhD), clinical trainees and junior faculty gain exposure to the ATS, particularly in the field of sleep. We have several ongoing activities that are designed to engage early career individuals.

Sleep Matters Blog: 

The SRN ECP WG sponsors an ongoing blog related to sleep medicine, including the latest news, research, and opportunities within the sleep medicine field.

Mentoring Program:

The SRN Assembly has an annual program that pairs early to mid-career professionals with senior mentors. Mentors and Mentees connect in person at the ATS Conference, these interactions provide a great opportunity to network, collaborate, discuss career strategies, and gain a greater understanding of the field. Mentees and mentors at all stages of their career are welcome to join.

Apprenticeship Program:

The goal of this program is to place one trainee or early career professional each within the Programming and Planning Committees of the SRN Assembly. Under the mentorship of a committee member, apprentices will get a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the operations of the SRN Assembly while developing skills for evaluation of committee applications and development of committee projects, as they help in guiding the future of ATS.
