After YPG’s successful startup in 2012/13, the YPG team would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support and announce that our Lunch & Learn Seminar Series is returning this Spring.

For those researchers who are relatively new to Tech: YPG is a volunteer organization established in September 2012 to serve the needs of the growing community of non-tenure tracked researchers (postdoctoral researchers and research scientists). The mission of YPG is to promote networking, encourage intellectual creativity, stimulate professional development, offer support services, and maximize the success of its members at Georgia Tech and in the future.
