Surely, her talk on “Money and careers in science: where to start?” will apply to PhD and postdoctoral fellows. In addition, local junior researchers will present exciting findings in malignant melanoma, breast, prostate and endometrial cancer.

Join us for a perfect occasion for professional input and digital networking!

Postdocs Cornelia Schuster and Maria Lie Lotsberg are chairs.
