    LSM_Campus Research Talks

    Friday, 28 September, 2018 - 15:30 to Friday, 31 May, 2019 - 15:30
    Campus: Brussels Health Campus
    Seminar series

    Campus Research Talks are a bi-weekly friday afternoon seminar sessions (15.30) at the VUB Jette Campus organized by the LSM doctoral school and the UMCOR.

    The objectives for these Campus Research Talks are to

    -       Offer the doctoral students the opportunity to present their work to a somewhat larger audience than their regular labmeetings and/or clustermeetings.

    -       Increase the visibility of all the research done at this campus through “state of the art” presentations of the Principal Investiagors combined with the latest breakthroughs presented by the PhD students.

    -       Enhance the interaction between laboratories at all levels of research. We therefore invite Principal Investigators, PhDs, Post-Docs, technicians and 2nd year master students to attend this event.

    A Campus Research Talk will consist of two parts; the principal investigator of a research unit will first introduce the research topic of his/her research unit during  a 20-25 minute state of the art-like talk, during which the PI can highlight the contributions of the unit to the research field. Following this introduction, the PhD student will present his/her work during 20-25 minutes as well. In this second part, a smaller and more specific intro to the PhD-students work is followed by (un)published work of the PhD student with emphasis on their own breakthroughs, technical approaches and problems, personal views etc. After the two talks, there is some time for questions (to both speakers) and altogether the Campus Research Talk should not take up more than 1 hour. Afterwards, drinks (+ snacks) will be provided to facilitate further discussion and networking.

    We would like to start the seminar sessions on Friday 28th of September (VUB week 2) in Room B017 from 15h30-16h30, and then every other week. Please look at your availability in the first semester first before you look at the second semester.
