BYTE2024: Bioinformatics Young Talent Exchange

Attention to all starting PhD students in computational biology! YoungCB is proud to announce the first rendition of BYTE: The Bioinformatics Young Talent Exchange. Not only will this be the perfect opportunity to meet fellow starting computational biologists, our speakers Ramona Zwamborn and Patrick Kemmeren will give you all the ins-and-outs on PhD life, academic struggles, and the Dutch computational biology landscape. The perfect kickstart to your PhD!

At this event we want to introduce PhD students still in their starting phase with the BioSB research school and give them an opportunity to meet each other and build on their early career network in an informal setting.

We will have two guest speakers that will share their experiences and tips and tricks they think you should know at the start of your PhD:

Ramona Zwamborn, final year PhD student @ UMC Utrecht

Patrick Kemmeren, BioSB board member and Principal Investigator @ Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology
