The idea of organizing the first MSC Network Meeting for young investigators was discussed at the last DASCS conference in Odense, November 2017.With the different angles on MSC research in Denmark, we see an opportunity to establish a community for young MSC focused scientists that can be an explorative network helping each individual scientist make their way through their MSC project and to establish new collaborations within complementary fields – and make new “stem cell” friends.
This is the first MSC Network Meeting, however we hope that this initiative could continue in the future with follow-up MSC initiatives, creating a Danish MSC network.
10.00-10.15: Refreshments and brief introduction to the overall ideas behind the initiative
10.15-11.30: Quick presentation of you, your project, and your expectations for the network meeting and MSC Group
11.30 – 12.15: Lunch
12.15-13.30: Break out session in groups – CHALLENGES AND NEEDS
13.30-14.30: Reflections from each group
14.30-15.00: Conclusions – NEXT MEETING? Cake and beer
18.30: Optional dinner in Odense (covered by yourself)
We would like to invite young researchers from Master students to post.docs with interest and knowledge within the field, to create an environment of competence and energy.
