What's next? Meeting forum for PhD students and postdocs

The What's next? meeting forum is a collaboration and peer support hub for PhD students and postdocs at Lund Stem Cell Center.

Triumph and disaster interview series

In this interview series, we will explore how open discussions around a variety of topics can help foster collaborative environments. The aim of this series is to share our successes, failures, and the lessons we have learned. We will explore professional identity and motivation across diverse academic career stages through moderated interviews with junior and senior researchers, followed by Q&As from the audience.
