Next week (5/3) the seminar series
“Perspectives in Translational Medicine” hosted by K1 and K2 will
commence. The series has been presented
earlier in this editorial by Stefan Johansson
He is the leader of the group responsible for organizing the series.
The purpose of the seminar series is to let different research groups at K1 and K2 present their own research in a way which stimulates cooperation with other groups at K1 and K2. A prerequisite for this to be a success is that established researchers allocate time to participate at the seminar. The series may then be useful not only for the presenter of the topic, but also for other scientific employees and, not least, PhD candidates and postdocs. The series was recently discussed at the strategy seminar for K2’s research group leaders and academic leaders. A number of suggestions for how this series can be a good meeting arena were proposed.
The first lecture is given by Bjørn Tore Gjertsen: Personalized Medicine – how personal can we get? Location: Main Auditorium, Sentralblokken, March 5, 2:15 pm. I strongly encourage you to attend! Knowing Bjørn Tore, there is a big chance that this will be time well spent!
