CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium   

We are happy to invite you to the CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium Thursday February 2, 2023, from 09:00-13:00, at B301, Sentralblokka, Haukeland University Hospital.

This seminar series is a perfect place to meet and interact with other young scientists. We anticipate lively and interesting discussion also this time. We are looking forward to the keynote lecture by CCBIO researcher Harsh Dongre, who will talk about how to make the jump of academic independence and establish your own research group. The program spans several exiting topics including small molecule drug discovery in prostate cancer, PDX models as preclinical tools for investigating myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), mitochondrial trafficking in the tumor microenvironment and the role of CEL in pancreatic disease. Join us for a perfect occasion for professional input and networking!

Please register within January 30th at 11.00 if you want the FREE LUNCH which is included. If you don’t need the lunch, you can also register later.

When: Thursday February 2, 2023, 09:00-13:00
