Brown bag meeting of PhD students working on the ImPRESS project "International, interdisciplinary doctoral studies in the field of medical biology and biostatistics, training in research based on large-scale technologies and biostatistics, and support for young researchers through international and intersectoral mobility" took place at the Senate Hall on January 17, 2019. Project coordinator, Rector Marcin Moniuszko officially introduced two new early stage researchers, who joined the group as the last ones, in November and December. PhD students were informed about organizational matters by the Head of studies, Dean Anna Moniuszko-Malinowska. The PhD students discussed individual research projects, which will soon start as part of the ImPRESS project, and ongoing work in their departments. They exchanged previous experience on various research techniques, and discussed the possibilities of going to interesting trainings or conferences. Brown bag meeting will be organized periodically, every month. Meetings will be a great opportunity to exchange experiences and establish interdisciplinary cooperation between doctoral students from ImPRESS project.
On January 18, 2019, early stage researchers became acquainted with the guidelines for conducting research during an ethical course organized by Professor Otylia Kowal-Bielecka, the Chairwoman of the MUB Bioethics Committee.
15 early stage researchers from all over the study and work at MUB in the framework of the ImPRESS project, "International Interdisciplinary PhD studies in Biomedical Research and Biostatistics. Supporting the career and training in omic-based research and biostatistics by inter-national and - sectoral mobility", co-financed from the European Commission, within the COFUND, Maria Skłodowska-Curie Actions in the Horizon 2020 Framework Program and from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The project will last 5 years, it will end in 2023. PhD students are employed in various MUB units, such as: Clinical Research Center, Department of Population Medicine and Prevention of Civilization Diseases, Department of Regenerative Medicine and Immunoregulation, Department of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry, Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis, Department of Medical Biology, Department of Neurodegeneration Diagnostics, Department of Medicinal Chemistry, Department of Microbiology and Nanobiological Engineering and Department of Clinical Molecular Biology.
