The Infection & Inflammation (I&I) Young Researcher’s Forum is a panel of junior scientists (PhD students and Postdocs) within the Infection & Inflammation Research Theme that meets twice a month.

The Young Researchers’ Seminar series

Every first Wednesday of the month, we practice presenting our research to a larger audience. We discuss recent findings and issues with experiments. The I&I Young Researcher’s Forum seeks to bring PhD students and Postdocs together to meet and network across labs to increase awareness about research being conducted within our research theme - paving the way for new collaborations and projects.

The Young Researchers’ Journal Club

Every third Wednesday of the month, we hold a morning journal club. Here we share and discuss recent papers over a breakfast, with PI’s invited to provide their insights too. The aim is to broaden the scientific curiosity of all participants, increasing the social relation between groups and the awareness of what different groups work with.
