Pre-Clostpath Young Scientists Meeting

The Pre-Clostpath Young Scientists committee wants to provide a platform for young scientists to meet up with their peers prior to the actual Clostpath meeting, to get to know each other in a less formal and more relaxed environment. Additionally, the Pre-Clostpath Young Scientists Meeting offers more young scientists an opportunity to present their research through an oral presentation.

Date: Sunday, August 18, 2019

Cost: free for Young Scientists attending Clostpath.

The location for the days is Lecture Hall 1, in the main building of the Leiden University Medical Center.

Registration, coffee breaks and lunch will be in the foyer of the lecture hall (follow route 273), unless noted otherwise.

13:30-15:30       Expert panel session (Academia, Sales, Journal/editorial, Biotech)

During this two hour expert panel session, each expert will have 30 minutes to enlighten young scientists on the skills and requirements for a career in their respective field. There will be a large emphasis on interaction with the audience, so we are counting on a 15-20 minute talk, followed by 10 minutes of questions.

15:30-16:00       Drinks at the “Paleijhs” (follow the YSM committee members!)

Talk to your peers for a while, while enjoying a cold beer or soda.
