Helsinki Life Science Day

The Helsinki Life  Science Day will bring  together students from all doctoral programmes under the Doctoral School of  Health. Students will get to see what their peers are doing, and have a chance  to present their own work through poster or oral presentations. The day will  feature a high-profile keynote speaker, student workshops, and an evening  dinner party. The aim of the Helsinki Life Science Day is to provide an  opportunity to the students of DS Health to disseminate their research and  network with fellow students, senior researchers, and representatives of the  industry.

This year the Helsinki Life Science  Day will take place on November 9th. The morning session will be  held in Metsätieteiden talo (Latokartanonkaari 7). Prof. Velia Fowler (Scripps  Institute, La Jolla, USA) will present the keynote lecture, and Juuso Parkkinen  (Reaktor, Finland) will share his wisdom and tell us how to maximize our impact  and use the skills we learn during our PhD to change the world. Select students  will present talks for a chance to win €500, and the author of the best poster  will receive €250, so bring your best game! The day will also include several  focused workshops.

The evening dinner will be held in  the glorious Berghyddan in Vanhakaupunki. Those quick enough to reserve a place  in the dinner will enjoy a three-course dinner and drinks, and a surprise  program!

The deadline for registration is  27.10.2017. Limited space, so be quick!
