The last 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 October 31, 2019. The Project coordinator, Vice-Rector for Science and Development Marcin Moniuszko with Vice-Dean of the College of Medical Sciences, associate professor Anna Moniuszko-Malinowska discussed the procedure and requirements concerning the 2019/2020 doctoral scholarship, proquality scholarship and Rector’s scholarship. Moreover, the PhD students were instructed how to fill in the survey assessing the scientific development of MUB employees and were informed on other current matters, such as forthcoming OHS training. Monthly meetings are a perfect opportunity to exchange experience and network for the ImPRESS PhD students and discuss the relevant matters with ImPRESS project management.
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. Academic supervisors of PhD students are researchers, distinguished specialists from MUB.
