We are looking for academic institutions (universities or research institutions) with a strong research background in in molecular life sciences and an active PhD community. The event will be organized by PhD and postdoctoral students, so it is a unique opportunity to immerse young researchers in organizational and project management skills, allowing them to gain valuable experience.
