These MD PhD candidates have a unique role and associated responsibilities since they are the link between basic science and clinical practice. The 4thEuropean MD/PhD conference aims to bring together MD/PhD candidates to offer them a scientific network, boost their talent, inspire one another and discuss their research and the future role of MD PhD candidates in medicine.

We are proud to announce our keynote speakers Prof. Martin Chalfie, who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for his revolutionising discovery of the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) and Prof. Howard Bauchner, the editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), who will tell us about the ins and outs of publishing from his own perspective as a renowned editor.

All European medical PhDs  are invited to discuss their research through various forms of presentations. Don’t forget to submit your abstract to make sure you are part of this unique conference! Participants will be accredited with 1 ECTS.
