CCBIO is happy to be inviting you to a seminar in scientific writing and communication, May 23-24, 2022. 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. The course is also a part of CCBIO's Research School, with ID CCBIO908.


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.

Media Advisor Marion Solheim will be adding a lecture on science presentation, showing how to make a presentation stick - in a good way. 

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 is free of charge.

Program: See the tentative program here (subject to changes).


Deadline for ECTS providing registration is February 1, 2022. If you are already enrolled at the University of Bergen (UiB), you register through Studentweb. If you are not enrolled at the UiB, but need the ECTS, you register through Søknadsweb, where you simultaneously apply for UiB guest student status (also deadline Feb. 1). 

If you don't need the ECTS (studiepoeng) registered as part of an education/degree, and just want to join the lectures for professional update, you register through through this link, with deadline April 23, 2022. Note that registration might be closed earlier when fully booked.

Where: We aim for a hybrid solution where you can choose between personal attendance in an auditorium at campus Haukeland University Hospital, or join from home through a digital platform. 

When: May 23-24, 2022. 

Who: Open for all, but if the course gets fully booked (and it has, every time), participants are included based on first come, first served.

Credits: This course provides 2 ECTS. You need to be registered as a student at the University of Bergen to get the ECTS registered.

Contact: If you have any questions, please contact course coordinators vandana.ardawatia@uib.no and harsh.dongre@uib.no or academic responsible Elisabeth Wik, elisabeth.wik@uib.no
