Due to the Covid-19 situation, this programme was converted into an online event instead of a face-to-face meeting at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.
The event was attended by 37 Post-docs and PhD students, not only from Cambridge and Denmark, but as far afield as the USA, India , Egypt, Portugal and Brazil.
- Our speakers prepared short webcasts to be viewed in advance but joined the event live to present a summary of their topic and took questions.
- Poster session involving 17 participants, with digital posters to view in advance and one minute poster pitches and Q&A during the live event.
- Interactive tools to help re-create networking opportunities including an ‘introduce yourself’ ice breaker session, group work and measuring goals and expectations at the start and end of the course!
The course was open to PhD students and early stage postdoctoral researchers interested in developing their research in this field and was run jointly by the Cambridge Metabolic Network and the Danish Diabetes Academy (DDA).
