Special events for students and young investigators

Guru lunches, during lunch hours on June 18 and 19

Take the chance to have an inspiring meeting with a prominent researcher, senior toxicologist (industry/regulatory agency/academy/university) or other professionals in a relaxing setting!

Separate one-hour sessions with one guru and approximately 10-12 students will be set up during lunch hours on June 18 and 19, focusing on different research fields or current issues within the science and expertise of the guru. The format of the session should mainly be an informal discussion based on questions from the students about the specific topic. The role of the guru would be to add a personal touch to his/hers scientific expertise, and to share this expertise as well as personal experience from his/hers toxicological career. We believe that this activity in the Eurotox Congress program will be an appreciated and valuable addition for students and young investigators attending the congress!

 

More information as well as registration for the guru-lunches will be provided on-site at the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre in connection with the registration desk near the main entrance. There is no registration fee, but spaces are limited!
