Welcome to Horizons 2013
Welcome to the homepage of the 10th anniversary “Horizons in Molecular Biology” International PhD Student Symposium! We are glad you are here and hope you will also make it to the conference on September 9-13th 2013. Our programme is made by PhD students for PhD students, so come and enjoy it together with us to make new friends from all over the world, expand your professional network and learn about the hottest new topics in molecular biology.
Explore the frontiers of molecular biology in 23 talks by dynamic young scientists as well as established luminaries, among them Nobel laureate Tim Hunt, neuroscientist and memory researcher Erin Schuman, Kartik Chandran, who investigates the evolution of emerging viruses, cell-cell contact specialist and cancer fighter Erkki Ruoslahti and Tony Hunter, the discoverer of tyrosine phosphorylation.
Network with our speakers, for example in a “Lunch with the Prof”, and interact with them and other participants in a relaxed low-threshold environment with social events like the conference party and dinner and the special 10th anniversary celebration. You will never get this close to your heroes of science again!
Present your own research in posters and get selected for a talk, for both of which you can win awesome prizes.
Discover opportunities at the Career Fair preceding the symposium, for example science visualisation or consulting. Attend workshops to develop skills in acquiring research funding and how to optimally place your latest paper – essential competencies for your successful career in science! And now that your career is going to be a success, maybe you want to hear about how a Nobel laureate gets chosen from Urban Lendhal, the chairman of the Nobel Committee – just in case ; )
Participate in hands-on cutting-edge techniques workshops corresponding to research talks – for example on super-resolution STED microscopy, NMR or cryo-EM.
Sign up now – we are looking forward to meeting you!
The symposium is under the patronage of the German Federal Minister of Education and Research, Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka.
