Mye + Info + Bank Young Researcher Virtual Workshop

Finding a common language in translational research


Are you a young researcher working translationally in the fields of bioinformatics, myeloid cell research, biobanking or diseases associated with chronic inflammation? Are you looking for an opportunity to expand your knowledge on bordering expertise in any of these areas? Our Mye-InfoBank COST Action CA20117 is a new European network offering a virtual workshop designed for young scientists on establishing a common ground for pan-European collaborative research in these overlapping fields. Furthermore, participants will be given a brief overview of funding opportunities offered by the COST Association for young researchers.

Local Organisers: Ana Espada de Sousa, Karine Marie Serre and Natacha Gonçalves Sousa

Workshop Hosts: Joanna Cichy (Action Vice-Chair) and Annika Malin Bruger (Grant Awarding Coordinator)



IMPORTANT: Please bear in mind that Portugal's time zone (GMT) is the same as that of Ireland and UK.
