Young Scientist Committee

About Us

CRS Young Scientists are a diverse group of people who are typically students and early career scientists in academia or industry under the age of 40 years, or scientists with less than five years’ experience in the science, technology, and innovation of delivery of bioactives.

  • A passion to overcome challenges and innovate in the delivery of bioactives
  • A thirst to broaden their scientific knowledge
  • A desire to build their career and develop professionally

The Young Scientist Committee (YSC) is a team dedicated to bring stimulating education workshops and new networking concepts to meet the needs of CRS member Young Scientists.

Networking Opportunities

YSC hosts a number of interesting and new networking concepts because we believe it is critical to meet, interact, and exchange ideas with other CRS members both with other Young Scientists and the broader CRS community. These interactions are a crucial part of career development, and networking contacts for present and future career opportunities. Networking activities held during the Annual Meeting include:

  • Young Scientitst Meet & Greet
  • Young Scientist Networking Event
  • Start with a Luminary

Interviews with Luminaries


Workshops are an important part of the Annual Meeting which provide the opportunity to learn about new science in the field and enhance research collaboration.
