Dear all

We are happy to welcome you all to the CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium, December 6, 2023. This seminar series is a perfect place to meet and interact with other young scientists. We anticipate lively and interesting discussion also this time. We are looking forward to the keynote lecture by CCBIO Professor Dana Costea, who will share her story about how and why she ended up in cancer research. The program spans several exiting topics including preclinical development of new therapeutics in mantle cell lymphoma, the link between salivary gland manifestation and renal disease in Sjøgren’s Syndrome and how brain-blood derived exosomes may act as biomarkers in multiple sclerosis (MS). A novel tool for spatial analyses of the tumour microenvironment will also be presented.

Please register within December 4th at 11.00. 

When: December 6, 2023 at 09.00-13.00
Where: Auditorium B302, Sentralblokka, Haukeland University Hospital 3rd floor
