"Kjeldgaard Lectures in Molecular Biology" is a high-profile lecture series, where we invite leading scientists worldwide covering the research areas of our department.
The lectures are followed by a PhD session where the PhD students have the opportunity to ask questions to the guest about research, collaboration, postdoctoral opportunities, etc.
The Brian Clark Biotech Lectures take place on an ad hoc basis when relevant speakers from industry are available. The lectures are meant to be inspiring and informative to staff and students at the department.
To take full advantage of the biotech visits, we organise a networking event after the lecture where groups or individuals can to talk to the speaker about anything from discussion on specific projects, know-how, career opportunities, to proposals for joint applications on larger grants or EU networks.
MBG focus talks are scientific talks arranged by individual sections or groups and are therefore of a more specialised nature than e.g. the Kjeldgaard Lectures and the Brian Clark Biotech Lectures.
Every year, the department holds an Annual Meeting for the department's staff and students with lectures, posters and exhibitors during the day, and the annual meeting ends in the evening with a big party with dinner, entertainment and dance for all participants.
