We have the pleasure to invite you to our CCBIO Junior Symposium (JUSS) 30th January 2020. Senior Advisor Yves Aubert from the Division of Research and Innovation will share concepts of innovation and address their importance for researchers. Additionally, junior researchers will present interesting projects covering various fields, among other the use of next generation technology with exciting results from the Hyperion Image System and Artificial Intelligence analysis on tumor vessels. Join us for a perfect occasion for professional input and networking!

Postdocs Kenneth Finne and Cornelia Schuster are chairs. 

When: 10.00-13.40

Where: Conference room, BB-building (opposite the auditoria)

Registration: Please use this link within January 28th, noon.
