Dear all

We are happy to welcome you all to the CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium, June 6, 2024. This seminar series is a perfect place to meet and interact with other young scientists. We anticipate lively and interesting discussion also this time.

It is a pleasure to present Geir Olav Løken, Administrative Leader of CCBIO, as the keynote speaker. He will use his decades long experience in mediating between researchers and the administration to elaborate on how to best interact with “the other side” and point out pitfalls and coping strategies. Anna Gorbunova, a new postdoc in Carina Strell’s group, will present the prognostic impact of mitochondrial proteins in lung cancer. You will also learn more about how to target homology repair deficiency in breast cancer, tissue engineering of bone marrow and precision medicine in children’s cancer. Please register within June 3th at 11.00. 

When: June 6, 2024 at 09.00-13.00
Where: Møterom, HBE, Glasblokkene, Blokk 8, U1etg, U364, Auditorium
