YSF Programme


The 18th FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF) will start on Wednesday July 4th, 2018 with an inspiring opening lecture on a general biochemistry topic and a welcome dinner. The scientific programme over the following couple of days will provide opportunities for all participants to present their research as oral presentations and/or posters, and we are also looking forward to fascinating talks from our keynote speakers, covering a broad range of biological research. In addition, for part of Thursday July 5th a 'Careers Roundtable' will provide a forum to learn about and discuss early-career options, as well as providing advice on key skills. Over the course of the YSF there will be plenty of opportunities for participants to enjoy making new international connections and getting to know each other. For a social programme, we have planned a boat trip with a dinner on board, providing an exceptionally beautiful view of Prague's old bridges. The YSF will close on Saturday July 7th, 2018, when we will transfer to the FEBS Congress.

The preliminary schedule for the 18th YSF is set out below; details will be provided over the coming weeks.
