CCBIO is happy to be inviting you to a two-day seminar in scientific writing and communication, May 14th and 15th 2020. The seminar is open for all (requires registration). 

The course is part of the CCBIO/INTPART program, where students’ education and exchange is promoted through collaboration between CCBIO and the Boston based Harvard Medical School and Harvard Kennedy School. Elisabeth Wik is coordinating the program. This two-day seminar in scientific writing was first run in December 2017 and (see article about the first course), and again in May 2019.


Christine Møller, an experienced lecturer in medical and scientific writing with many years of experience as assistant editor of APMIS (Acta Pathologica Microbiologica et Immunologica Scandinavica).

Randy Watnick, assistant professor at the Vascular Biology Program, Harvard Medical School.

In addition, Media Advisor Marion Solheim will be adding a lecture on science presentation, showing how to make a presentation stick - in a good way. She'll also talk about the use of language, information overload and the bleeding-eye-syndrome - which is caused by terrible lay-out. Not to mention body language and tone of voice.

There is something to learn for all of us! We strongly encourage students at all levels, including postdocs, to prioritize this and attend! Senior staff is also very welcome. The seminar is also open to national and international visitors, and it is free of charge.
