FACING THE FUTURE Perspectives and challenges of life sciences in the 21st century

Since its conception in 1999, the EMBL PhD Symposium has evolved into a highly respected scientific meeting, connecting young researchers and high-profile scientists alike. This year our Symposium centers on the theme Facing the Future: Challenges and Perspectives of Life Sciences in the 21st century.

In order to present a global picture of the latest challenges and perspectives, in this event we are dedicated to bring together the most outstanding researchers from a broad range of disciplines, that implement highly promising approaches to tackle the current scientific questions as well as the global problems we face as humanity. We will address environmental and global health issues, highlight interdisciplinary approaches as physics and informatics in biology, present innovations in life sciences and raise awareness of the challenges within the scientific community including big data, open access and gender equality.

The meeting aims to showcase exciting and groundbreaking research, from Master’s projects all the way to Nobel Prize winning work. It is an opportunity to meet the Scientists that currently drive the Science of the Future and to network with the next generation of scientists. With a broad theme, we hope to encourage many young researchers from across the sciences to showcase their research, stimulate cross-disciplinary discussion and meet scientists from diverse backgrounds to share ideas.
