NCMM Network Meeting 2019
Registration is now open for the NCMM annual network meeting.
The first day of the programme, which is open to all invitees, will include a session on 'big data', with talks by researchers that include Francesca Buffa, Principal Investigator, Department of Oncology, University of Oxford, and Elana Fertig, Associate Professor of Oncology and Assistant Director of the Research Program in Quantitative Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. The session will examine why big data is so important for scientific research, with insight into the possibilities and potential issues that can arise.
Day one will also see NCMM's newly appointed Director, group leaders, and associate and young associate investigators present their research. Speaker Bård Brænde, will also give a talk on how to drive creativity, motivation, and collaboration in the workplace. There will also be time allocated for networking and discussion during the programme.
Day two, which will be a closed meeting for NCMM group leaders, associate and young associate investigators, will feature a half-day workshop that will focus on improving communication and negotiation skills in the workplace. All PIs in the network are invited to the workshop and we encourage NCMM group leaders and young associate investigators in particular to attend.
After lunch, there will also be a tour of NCMM for those who would like to learn more about our labs and facilities.
An initial event programme is now available: NCMM Network Meeting 2019 (pdf).
