Main content

A highlight of the first symposium this fall is an inspirational lecture by CCBIO affiliate Professor Daniela Elena Costea. Daniela Costea is the group leader of the Experimental Pathology Research Group -you wouldn't want to miss her talk!

Another highlight of this symposium is an educational introduction to cancer immunotherapy by Kjersti Davidsen, PhD student at the Department of Biomedicine.

Kjell Petersen from the Department of Informatics will share with us his knowledge and experience on integrating data analysis from transcriptomic and proteomic data.
