22nd EMBL PhD Symposium “The Roaring 20s: A New Decade for Life Sciences” (Nov 27-29, 2020)

For the first time in history the annual EMBL PhD Symposium will be taking place online and you are cordially invited.

Over the next ten years, vast progress will be achieved within the life sciences and new challenges are emerging. The organizers are dedicated to bring together outstanding researchers from a broad range of disciplines that implement highly promising approaches to tackle the current scientific questions as well as the global problems we face as a scientific community and as humanity. They will address issues ranging from basic research questions in the life sciences to the most recent developments in synthetic biology, disease management, and neuroscience. Furthermore, they will address the intricate relationship between living organisms and their environment – focusing on ecology and evolution – and on the discussion about how to communicate our science to the society we are part of.

The call for posters, unfortunately, was closed on Sep 3 already. Nontheless, you are welcome to participate (no fees). Please register by Oct 15, 2020.
