The initiative youngblood@fci
aims at providing a platform for young scientists and clinicians
, within the FCI, to unite their common interests, their resources, their expertise
and come up with novel ideas and concepts.
Our participants assemble from various research backgrounds and different laboratories as well as clinical departments which are connected with the FCI. With regular informal events, our initiative not only creates space and possibility for supporting each other by addressing methodical and conceptual queries but it also includes sharing resources and suggestions. The initiative also serves as a tool for additional input and shared learning on scientific topics as well as a broad spectrum of methods. By self-organization, with the support of the FCI, our events, talks, and seminars lead by experienced researches from in- and outside the FCI can directly address the interests and needs of its attendants. Overall, our youngblood@fci initiative enables young scientists and clinicians to shape and experience translational research and scientific collaboration at an early stage of their career.
