Course description

Course content

Early Stage Researcher Seminars are a series at the Department of Biomedicine, where the participants present and discuss their own research projects.

The main objective of the course is to reflect on, and critically discuss on-going research projects in the field of biomedicine, and to nurture scientific interactions amongst PhD-candidates at the Department.

The course will communicate an understanding for open academic discussions amongst peer scientist. It will support and strengthen critical thinking and scientific curiosity and provide a forum for sharing ideas and testing hypotheses. By keeping the senior researchers outside, the forum is a safe environment where early stage researchers can act more independently, thus practicing their discussion skills.

The course covers the following key topics:

  • scientific excellence,
  • technical challenges,
  • societal impact,
  • ethical issues relating to biomedical PhD-projects.
