Non-PI meeting at the 8th Internal. Meeting of the Stem Cell Network NRW
The GSCN is organizing a Non-PI workshop for graduate students and postdocs on Monday 20 April 2015 in connection with the 8th International Meeting of the Stem Cell Network NRW (21 – 22 April 2015) in Bonn. The goal of this workshop is to foster interaction between the GSCN members in a relaxed atmosphere and to discuss and identify expectations and needs of the participants. Each scientific GSCN working group will have the possibility to nominate two speakers (students/postdocs) so that there will be talks from 14 participants in four sessions (20 min per person). Furthermore, all attendees will discuss the structure, the needs and the expectations of future Non-PI meetings. We are planning to have these Non-PI meetings of members of one WG at a central location in Germany, starting later this year.
If you are interested in this format and want to hear about projects from the whole field of stem cell research as well as participating at the 8th International Meeting in Bonn, please send a short statement on your person, project and motivation to participate in the Non-PI meeting to the coordinator of the respective acietific working group. The GSCN will cover your hotel costs from Sunday to Monday, the catering and invite all participants to dinner in downtown Bonn on Monday evening.
