This is the 1st European PhD and Postdoc Symposium and it will be held in Barcelona from the 15th to the 17th of November 2017. The aim of this conference is to highlight recent advances and applications of modern techniques and models in biomedical research. The scientific programme covers a wide range of topics, from synthetic biology to translational medicine. The symposium is organised by PhD students and Postdocs from four international institutes and will feature lectures from eight renowned invited keynote speakers. About 300 participants, mainly PhD students and Postdocs, are expected to attend. The symposium offers top-notch scientific lectures as well as opportunities for young scientists to interact with established scientists during Masterclasses or the social ‘Tapas with Speakers’ events.

Tapas with speakers
Informal evening discussion between the speakers and young scientists, accompanied by typical Tapas finger food. The relaxed atmosphere will facilitate the exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge. The venue will be in bar or pubs. Details on the participating speakers will follow soon.
Young researcher (PhD and PostDoc attendees) will be selected to present their current results and goals, alongside renowned speakers, in 15-minute presentations, including questions from the audience.
Active discussion in small groups of 1 or 2 articles proposed by the keynote speakers. The researcher will critically analyse with the participants the context that led to the article writing, methodology, results and interpretation. A debate on the impact on the field, general population and future research will follow. Attendees will receive information about the chosen articles two weeks before the symposium. Details on the participating speakers will follow soon.
Students are invited to present their own work in two poster sessions during the scientific days of the symposium.
The event will be held in the vibrant city of Barcelona, Spain.
The venue will be the “Palauet Casades”, a neoclassical building located at the city centre.
