Building a career in survivorship research is rewarding – but also can be challenging. In addition to common needs like obtaining funding and creating collaborations, survivorship investigators have unique issues such as institutional and geographic isolation. Hearing from successful researchers and having a network of colleagues can make the path to a lifelong career in survivorship science easier. The NCI Office of Cancer Survivorship (OCS) New Investigators Series was created in 2022 with this goal in mind.
