Junior Scientist Symposium April 28th

We have the pleasure of inviting you to attend the upcoming CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium, April 28th. We are happy to present a scientific program that should be of great interest.

The CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium is an arena where PhD candidates and postdocs gain experience with oral presentations and academic discussions, and also occasionally be inspired by CCBIO PIs.

This symposium is an arena where PhD candidates and postdocs gain experience with oral presentations and academic discussions. The meetings have proved to be an excellent place for young researchers to get input for potential collaborations in ongoing and future projects.

The program covers a broad range of topics, from basic studies to clinical research. Further, trial lectures may be presented, and invited speakers from research groups outside of CCBIO have also the opportunity to present their projects. Recently a new entry has been introduced; inspirational talks by CCBIO's Principal Investigators.

Each symposium has a format where 3-5 PhD candidates and postdocs present their research, followed by short discussions.
