20th EMBL PhD Symposium: Game Changers

22. November 2018 - 24. November 2018

Join us for the 20th Anniversary of the annual EMBL PhD Symposium. Since its conception in 1999, the EMBL PhD Symposium has evolved into a highly respected scientific meeting, connecting young researchers and high-profile scientists alike. This year, we invite you to celebrate revolutionary ideas in molecular life sciences and explore the game-changing ideas that are shaping the face of modern science.

Over the last decade, we have seen many breakthroughs in the life sciences, much of these the consequence of collaborative, multi-disciplinary research. This year’s annual symposium will celebrate some of these breakthroughs, and share and discuss the up-and-coming ideas in science. We have an exciting line up of speakers confirmed from Nobel Laureate Professor Stefan W. Hell, to celebrated author Professor Nick Lane, to project leader of the ATLAS Detector Experiment at CERN, Professor Pippa Wells.

The meeting aims to showcase exciting and groundbreaking research, from Master’s projects all the way to Nobel Prize winning work. It is an opportunity to meet the game changers in modern science and to network with the next generation of scientists. With a broad theme, we hope to encourage many young researchers from across the sciences to showcase their research, stimulate cross-disciplinary discussion and meet scientists from diverse backgrounds to share ideas.

Come and join us at the 20th EMBL PhD Symposium, for three days of exciting and game-changing science.
