Training  course:

Comprehension & Content. Helena González - IRB Barcelona Public Engagement and Science Education Officer

FEBRUARY

2 Feb 2015 - 3 Feb 2015

Biomedical professionals require skills to communicate effectively, both when writing and when presenting their research orally. However, many do not receive specific training for this purpose.

English is the language used by the international scientific community. Although Spanish biomedical professionals channel great efforts into learning English, they often lack the specialized knowledge of the language required to communicate their science clearly.

This training seminar aims to help students to improve their scientific English. The course introduces some basic concepts underlying the oral and written communication of science and gives participants the opportunity to put theory into practice in a relaxed open discussion and feedback session. Finally, it introduces tools and tips for the student once the course has finished.

3MT (Three Minute Thesis) is a research presentation competition that originated at the University of Queensland in 2008.  Since then, the program has spread to several universities worldwide. This is the inaugural year for 3MT at IRB, and with active participation we hope that it will become an annual opportunity for PhD students.

“Breaking Down Complexity: Innovative models and techniques in biomedicine”
 

ENABLE is the first European symposium organized by and for PhD students and Postdocs. This initiative seeks to promote excellence in the biomedical sciences in Europe by supporting young researchers, strengthening scientific careers, and bringing biomedicine closer to society.
 

10 Apr 2017 - 11 Apr 2017

The workshop is aimed at both experimental (bench-based) researchers and bioinformaticians; additionally it may be of interest to tool developers who wish to integrate their tools into the VRE.
Participants should have an undergraduate understanding of biology AND have knowledge of genome organisation and the role it can play within the nucleus.
