2nd FoE Day Human & Biotechnology October 18

The 2nd FoE Day of Human & Biotechnology brings together the researchers from these two main disciplines. Talks will be given by scientists who either received a research project after successful FoE seed funding, or made a major step in their careers. Two keynote speakers from external research labs will conclude this event.
PhD students are welcome to bring their latest Posters and present them during the coffee break.
