Young Scientist Day, hosted by the Swedish Pharmaceutical Society, will take place at Apotekarsocieteten on November 27, as a satellite event to the Scheele Symposium. Take this unique opportunity to get to discuss your research in-depth with Professor Charpentier who generously shares her knowledge and experience. Admitted applicants will be able to present their scientific research and ask all the questions they want answered while networking with other scientist in the areas of CRISPR-Cas and Gene Therapy.

Just like this year’s Scheele Award winner, the 2019 Young Scientist Day will focus on research related to CRISPR-Cas and Gene Therapy. During the day, Professor Emmanuelle Charpentier will share her own experiences and reflections from her scientific career. 

Send us an abstract for a poster presentation no later than September 29 and you can be selected to participate in the 2019 Young Scientist Day – a great opportunity to present your research while interacting with other doctoral students as well as senior scientist in the field of gene editing.
The best poster will be awarded Young Scientist Award 2019, consisting of a cash prize of SEK 10 000.
