EMBO Young Scientists’s Forum – Lisboa – 15/16 Julho 2013

Dear ANICT members,

We would like to invite you to the EMBO Young Scientists’s Forum (YSF) on Life Sciences, which will take place on 15-16th July 2013 at IMM (grande auditório).

The EMBO YSF is aimed at bringing together young European researchers in order to motivate and inspire them to pursue their education and career in Life Sciences. After previous events in Turkey, Czech Republic, Croatia and Poland, it is now time for Portugal to host the EMBO YSF – at IMM!

This event will provide Portugal-based Masters & PhD students and Post-docs a unique opportunity to interact with members of the EMBO Young Investigator Programme (YIP). Besides listening to lectures by EMBO YIs (on diverse topics such as cell biology, development, oncobiology, immunity and infection or neusciences), the students and post-docs will present their work in two interactive poster sessions; and will have the chance to discuss the practice of doing science in Europe in informal settings such as coffee breaks, meals and a “career path” discussion. The YSF will be a packed two-day event, which will also include practical tips about scientific grant writing and the editorial process at EMBO Journal.

You can find all the information about the event, including the provisional programme, here:

Registration is free but mandatory until 15th May 2013 (using the link above).
A Best Poster Award will cover travel and registration to attend the international EMBO Meeting in Amsterdam, 21-24 September 2013.

Please feel free to circulate this e-mail and attached poster to other colleagues studying/ working on Life Sciences.

We hope this will be a fantastic scientific meeting at IMM!
With best regards from the Organizing Committee,
Bruno Silva-Santos, Luísa Figueiredo & Henrique Veiga-Fernandes.
