17th-19th November 2011
EMBL Advanced Training Centre

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a leading institute for research in molecular life sciences. The International EMBL PhD Symposium aims to provide young researchers from different international institutes with an opportunity to interact with leading scientists in an informal and relaxed environment.

PREVIOUS YEARS

PhD Symposium 2010

12th International EMBL PhD Symposium

Last year's symposium investigated a broad variety of topics under the unifying observation that what is considered "science fiction" at some point in time often turns up to be "science fact" over the course of history. >>>
