Dear everyone

We are excited to announce our three keynote speakers:

Alexander Tveit from UiT, The Arctic University of Norway. Alexander Tveit works as the Leader of CECO (Cells in the Cold) laboratory. His current research is focused on how micro-organisms play an important role in global carbon cycling.

Marja Roslund from LUKE (Natural Resources Institute Finland). Marja Roslund currently works on BIWE: biodiversity interventions for well-being project. Her research tries to find out the connections between human health and nature, especially biodiversity loss and urbanization.

Juha Saarikangas from the University of Helsinki. Juha Saarikangas works as the Associate Professor at the Helsinki Institute of Life Sciences, HiLIFE and leads the research group Cellular Individuality. His research focuses on how dynamic alterations in protein folding and assembly states regulate the phenotypic plasticity of cells and organisms.

We hope that you are as excited as we are on our amazing keynote speakers! See you on 11 May 2023!

Save the date!

Dear everyone,

Please save the date for the first Microbiology Day of the MBDP Doctoral Programme, which will be held on 11 May 2023

The Microbiology Day is a high-profile seminar for doctoral researchers to present their work, with peers and external evaluators giving valuable feedback on both the scientific content and presentational skills of the speaker.

The event will be organised at the Viikki campus in Infocentre building. We would like to invite all doctoral researchers in microbiology and biotechnology to give a talk at the symposium. Three international keynote speakers (TBA) will start each of the sessions of the day and they will also provide feedback on doctoral researcher presentations and will act as judges for the best talk prize. We also invite interested senior researchers and undergraduates to attend the presentations.

Registration for talks will open on 27 March.
