The Future Now: Emerging Leaders in Biomedicine

Thursday, September 21, 2023 @ 8:00 am5:00 pm

We are delighted to announce the first edition of the symposium “The Future Now: Emerging Leaders in Biomedicine“. This event is specifically tailored for advanced postdoctoral researchers and junior Group Leaders who are at the forefront of the vibrant biomedical community of the Barcelona area. Join us at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC) on September 21, 2023. This Symposium is co-organized by the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), the Vall d’Hebrón Institute of Oncology (VHIO), the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC),the Institute of Molecular Biology of Barcelona (IBMB), the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the University Pompeu Fabra, Department of Medicine and Life Science.

This symposium will be a unique opportunity for emerging leaders in biomedicine of the region to network, showcase their cutting-edge research, and foster collaborations. By participating in this event, early-career researchers will gain visibility, build valuable connections, and contribute to strengthening the local scientific ecosystem.

The program features a rich scientific agenda encompassing diverse disciplines within biomedicine, with oral presentations from distinguished young researchers covering basic and translational research, as well as cutting edge technologies. We will hold an engaging round table discussion focused on the relevant challenges faced by researchers at different stages of becoming independent investigators. Please find the program of the Symposium here.

The Emerging Leaders Symposium receives the support of Miltenyi Biotec, Macrogen, BGI Genomics, Bonsai Lab & Labclinics.

We extend a warm invitation to all postdoctoral researchers and junior Group Leaders in the Barcelona area to join us at the “Emerging Leaders in Biomedicine” symposium.

By coming together, we can shape the future of biomedicine, establish enduring connections, and contribute to the advancement of science in our local community and beyond.

Attendees will have the opportunity to present their research interests through virtual short presentations in the “Emerging Leaders Book”, fostering in-depth discussions and providing constructive feedback during the networking session and beyond. It’s an excellent opportunity for participants to refine their research ideas and expand their scientific horizons.

All participants wishing to appear in the “Emerging Leaders Book” must send their information via the following link before September 8, 2023
