Young Life Scientist's Symposium 2013: Cell Signalling

The Young Life Scientist (YLS) Symposia are organized by young life scientists for young life scientists, and allow junior and senior students as well as post-docs, to hear the latest research from leading scientists within the field of cell signalling, and to extend their academic, presentation, networking and communication skills. The unique format provides a chance to gain valuable experience in giving formal talks to a peer audience.

This year, in collaboration with the Irish Area Section of the Biochemical Society, the 'Young Life Scientists' Symposium - Cell Signalling' will be held on the 11th September, as a satellite event to the 8th Neuroscience Ireland Conference a Joint Meeting with the Irish Area Section Biochemical Society, at University College Cork.
