VIMM Trainee Seminars are weekly short seminars held by our junior trainees on Fridays. The spirit of the initiative is to offer our students and postdocs a peer-to-peer time to networking, improve communication skills and get feedbacks on ongoing projects. In addition, during the same time slot, we will now have bi-monthly “Meet-the-expert” sessions, where senior personnel will illustrate some of the high-profile, state-of-the-art equipment available at VIMM. 

The Scientific Board and the Institute takes pride in training and mentoring brilliant scientists of the future; engaging in off-the-bench scientific discussions is instrumental for your professional growth. The board warmly encourage to attend these seminars on a regular basis.
