"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.
In order to take full advantage of the visit from industry, we organise a networking meeting after the lecture, where groups or individuals can talk to the speaker about everything from the discussion of concrete projects, know-how, career opportunities, proposals for joint applications for larger grants or EU- network.
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.
With this symposium, we aim to attract and support talented and visionary scientists in applying for Danish investigator grants with the aim of establishing a research group at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics
The conference is an initiative spawn amongst the PhD students towards bringing together the PhD students of the entire Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. The aim is to give the PhD students a strong local network with other PhD students which will strengthen their scientific work, academic education and future career.
The speakers are former Master students from the department, representing different career paths, talking about the way to their jobs, giving examples of everyday job situations and tasks, as well as describing how they use their education in their respective jobs.
All supervisors present a poster with the research projects they can offer at a project day once a year for potential students.
Every year, MBG holds events for former students of the department.
