Last week, The Postgraduate School of Clinical Medical Research successfully held its annual event: Research Presentations 2013: A total of 45 posters and 15 oral presentations were being held from PhDs and postdocs from K1, K2 and the hospital departments (evt link til innsiden-sak??). The event illustrates the wide variety of research projects that are being performed at the two institutes with very high quality poster- and oral presentations. The event ended with a price ceremony, speeches and entertainment. We congratulate all the award winners, lead by first price winners Alessandro De Bortoli (K2) for the poster contest and Lene Bjerke Laborie (K1) for her oral talk. I would also like to thank the committee members phd students Marie Omsland, Monica Dalva and Ina Nepstad and the jury for making this an event to remember!
The Research school begins the year with a new board. We thank the previous leader Eyvind Rødahl and the board for their work. We wish to continue upon their work and aim at making the Research school a meeting point for phd-students where they can meet with their peers across different research fields to discuss science and life.
This semester, a new research seminar series will be started at the K1 and K2 – Perspectives in translational medicine: The lectures will be held by leading scientists and clinicians at K1 and K2, the first Wednesday each month at 14.15-15.00. We hope that the series will be characterized by high quality research and presentations, ”hot topics” and a special emphasize on translational studies. We welcome all researchers, postdocs and phd-students and hope that this will be a forum for scientific exchange and discussions.
The first lecture will be held by Bjørn-Tore Gjertsen: ”Personalized Medicine – How personal can we get?”, March 5th. PhD students who attend the seminars can get his approved as a one credit phd course. You just have to sign up on the course – FSKLI902!
Furthermore, from this year on, the network meetings that are held and administered by the phd students will be administered as a phd course. This means that those who present their work at the meetings can sign up for the course and get one credit if they complete the course requirements (kurs-id FSKLI901). The network meetings will continue to be open for all phd students and provide food for your body and mind.
Note that the deadline for course registrations is already February 1st. More info can be found at https://www.uib.no/rs/clinicalmedicine/activities/courses
