“The Promise of Future Medicine: from Research to Therapy”
This is the 2nd European PhD and Postdoc Symposium and it will be held in Copenhagen from the 6th to the 9th of November 2018. The aim of the conference is to present the latest advances and discoveries made in biomedical research that will ultimately determine the clinical practice and medicine of the future. The scientific programme covers a broad range of topics, from basic to clinical research, and will end with a final dissertation about the evolution of molecular biology throughout the last century. The symposium is organized by PhD students and postdocs from four international institutes and will feature lectures from 8 renowned keynote speakers. About 300 participants, mainly PhD students, are expected to attend. The symposium offers top-level scientific lectures as well as the opportunity for young scientists to interact with scientists during the social event “Dinner with speakers”.
