The Annual PhD Conference in Biomedical Sciences
The Annual PhD Conference in Biomedical Sciences brings together PhD students from different fields, offering a chance to present their research in front of their peers, supervisors and the Doctoral Board/Committee. The conference usually lasts three days, and all PhD students should actively participate (participation at the PhD conference is one of the degree requirements).
During the PhD conference, all PhD students present a poster. In addition to the poster, 3rd year students have to pass the doctoral state exam, while 2nd,4th and 5th year (or higher) students present their progress.
In 2021, the PhD conference was held for the first time among students of all three specializations following the idea "More people, more science & more fun!". Therefore, all students in the program take active part creating a team spirit, facilitating exchange of ideas and promoting communication between different departments.
