EMBL Australian Postgraduate Symposium 2021

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Australia life sciences network supports ambitious research projects and provides training to early-career Australian scientists. Every year, EMBL-networked postgraduate students organise a symposium that gives Honours, Masters and PhD students the opportunity to present their research and establish relationships for future collaborations.

In EAPS 2021, we are hoping to learn how looking to our past can prepare us for the challenges of our rapidly changing world. This is reflected in our symposium theme, “On Giants’ Shoulders: Adapting to an Ever-Changing World”. This year the EAPS symposium will be a hybrid event with the first two days fully virtual, and a final optional day of in-person attendance (subject to COVID-19 restrictions) in four cities across Australia: Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.

We invite postgraduates to present in the following research themes: Computational Biology, Cancer, Ecology & Biodiversity, Infection & Immunity, Molecular Biology and Regenerative Biology. Students have the opportunity to submit an abstract for a full presentation, lightning talk or virtual poster. The final day will also feature a 2-hour workshop on science communication, presented by experts Dr Anna-Sophie Jurgens and Dr Will J Grant from The Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. More details on precise venues and speakers will be announced soon.

Registrations have opened with early bird prices.

Oral abstract submissions close | Tuesday, 31 August.

Poster abstract submissions close | Thursday, 30 September.

We look forward to seeing you there!

*Please note that there are two separate forms for registration and abstract submission
