The 2016 NERF/VIB Phd class took place from September 26th to 28th, 2016. In 2016, the 1st year PhD students of NERF and of the VIB Center for the Biology of Disease are coming from 9 different countries. They now kicked-off their studies together here in Flanders with a ‘crash course’ to speed up integration into their different departments.
The students talked about their science, broadened their scientific and cultural perspectives and interacted with the Principal Investigators of the two departments.
They were further introduced to the core facilities of the departments and exposed to the exciting science conducted in different labs!
The week was concluded by the students hosting a reception together.
