Here's what's currently happening at the Young Physiolgists:


WE GOT NEWS FOR YOU - 12th Symposium of the Young Physiologists

On March 30/31 we will have our next symposium, this time in the city of Kiel. Please send your abstracts until January 30 to the following mail address: Abstracts should be in .docx format, 200-300 words long and include proper affiliation of all authors. And don't forget to mention whether you want to give a poster or an oral presentation!

We have been working hard behind the scenes to make the next Young Physiologists Symposium a special and good experience for everyone. For the first time, we have planned some workshops for you all to attend, supported and organised by AD Instruments and Nanion. The Nanion workshop will focus on cardiac electrophysiology and pharmacology, while AD Instruments offers two separate topics: One deals with LabChart in science (including a first glance at LabChart Lightning and use of Lt sensors), while the other concentrates on using Lt as a teaching software.



So far, we have organized a trip to a local brewery where food trucks will be waiting for you, to pick amongst many (vegan and vegetarian also!) food options.

Furthermore, we have invited two keynote speakers who will be sharing their experiences on work life balance as academics from Dr. Meike Stumpp (University of Kiel) and Dr. Marian Hu (University of Kiel), who are both DFG Emmy Noether funded.

Again, there will be travel grants for all active participants (oral or poster presentations) generously provided by the DPG as well as awards for the best posters and talks!

We were able to put up a nice program informing young scientists about career options both adjacent and outside academia. In the first session there were talks given by Morten B Thomsen about Scientific Citizenship and Lisa Nalbach about career options at the DFG. The second session included talks from Peter Sander (Bayer AG) about different roles at (big) pharmaceutical companies, Ditte Riber (SPARK program) about funding options for start-ups and Anders Bue Klein (Ousia Pharma) about the actual work in a start-up.

Thanks a lot to all the speakers and those who organised this event.
