Training school C
19.08.2020 - 21.08.2020
This event was virtual, hosted by AMC and Biofaction
These two days of training introduced the ESRs to scientific, statistical and ethical aspects of clinical trials research, with a special focus on fecal microbial transplantation (FMT). The ESRs gained understanding on the lifecycle of a clinical trial, from design to delivery and analysis. Ethical, legal, and regulatory issues has been covered, as well as protocol preparation, patient monitoring, and trial study designs. The ESRs obtained transferable skills covering the translation of microbiota discoveries to marketable products, intellectual property (IPR) management, and science communication.
The 2 days training on Fundamentals of Clinical Trials (AMC) were followed by The Art and Science Module (Biofaction) which introduced the creative, reflective and critical work of artist who uses biological media as their way of expression. The artwork of these bioartists is meant to inspire and think deeply about the ESRs own work in ways not directly related to generation of knowledge or production of innovative products and processes for the market. What could be seen as a distraction at first glance could help the ESRs to approach their work from entirely different angles and could lead to different types of innovation beyond the bio-economy.
Training school B
19.02.2020 - 26.02.2020
Afekta in collaboration with the UEF Business School will run a session on Entrepreneurship, Business & Innovation. ESRs will have the chance to visit Afekta’s offices and laboratories giving them insight into how small spin out companies are working.
DTU’s BIOSUSTAIN centre will organise a session on Microbiome Systems Biology. ESRs will learn theory and practice of bioengineering and its latest developments.
Training school A
23.08.2019 - 30.08.2019
Vienna, Berlin, Jena
Training school A’s scientific focus is on next generation sequencing. The course is hold at HKI. ESRs will learn how to analyse short read sequencing data from next generation sequencing platforms using the most common, state of the art techniques. The course will include as well a session on how to present the results of next generation sequencing analysis in scientific publications, talks and posters.
Our partners at Biofaction will combine teaching public communication and presentation skills with raising awareness of biosafety, bioethics and regulatory issues in synthetic biology in a playful way. In addition there will be a workshop on gender imbalance in academic and industrial research.
