Dear all

We are happy to welcome you all to the CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium, February 2nd, 2023. This seminar series is a perfect place to meet and interact with other young scientists. We anticipate lively and interesting discussion also this time. We are looking forward to the keynote lecture by CCBIO researcher Harsh Dongre, who will talk about how to make the jump of academic independence and establish your own research group. The program spans several exiting topics including small molecule drug discovery in prostate cancer, PDX models as preclinical tools for investigating myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), mitochondrial trafficking in the tumour microenvironment and the role of CEL in pancreatic disease. Please register within January 30th at 11.00.  

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