On May 12th at the Nencki Institute the Open Day for the PhD candidates was organized. The event was attended by about 50 people interested in studies and practices at the Institute. The event was open by Dr Witold Konopka, deputy Director for scientific research. Information on doctoral studies was presented by prof. Daniel Wójcik, Head of PhD Studies, and representatives of the Nencki’s PhD Students Council. Paweł Matryba, finalist of FameLab Poland, was also talking about his accomplishments. Guests also heard a lecture by prof. Ewa Sikory entitled Are we condemned to longevity?
Next, the guests visited 9 chosen labs: Synaptogenesis, Intracellular Ion Channels, Cell Signaling and Metabolic Disorders, Neuropsychology, Molecular and Systemic Neuromorphology, Epileptogenesis, Calcium Binding Proteins, Brain Imaging and Preclinical Testing of Higher Standard.
We wish the PhD candidates good luck and invite them to participate in the next events at the Institute.
