CCBIO junior symposium October 6th 2022

We are happy to welcome you all to the first CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium this semester, October 6th, 2022. This seminar series is a perfect place to meet and interact with other young scientists and we are very happy to announce that for the first time in years – it will be physical attendance only. We are very excited that Vladan Milosevic, a researcher at CCBIO will present the Hyperion – Image Mass cytometry System as our keynote presenter this time. As the debate in Norway is currently intense on what true women’s health is, we are looking forward to the presentations of our local junior researchers on topics related to 3D culturing of both ovarian and vulva cancer. We will also get updates on a clinical study investigating biomarkers for risk of blood clots during pregnancy. Finally, we will learn about mimicking clonal architecture in AML.

Please register within October 3rd at 11.00 as FREE LUNCH is included.
When: Thursday October 6th, 2022 at 09:00 – 13:00
