SEBBM Junior Consuls/FEBS Junior Sections presents Andreas Lausten
February 10, 2022 @ 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm UTC+0
In 2021 young representatives of some of the national Societies that form FEBS contacted us to ask for help setting up a new initiative: a network of students and young researchers across Europe, called the FEBS Junior Sections. Their aims are to collaborate and share resources, as well as to encourage mobility across Europe for young scientists.
Currently the FEBS Junior Sections are made up from the junior sections of the Austrian, Croatian, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, and UK national Societies. They are keen to invite young researchers and groups from other national Societies to join their initiative. Also, to encourage those Societies that do not have a formal junior section, to set one up. To support this, they have created posts and videos on the FEBS Network describing their national junior sections.
In addition, the FEBS Junior Sections take turns organizing monthly online talks on research and career topics. In 2021 they organized a talk from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and one from the team at EMBL-EBI that co-developed the AlphaFold database.
In 2022 they started a new series of talks in January with Dr Andreas Schlundt, at Goethe University Frankfurt talking about The roles of sequence, structure and dynamics for specific RNA-recognition by proteins.
These are the details of the February talk:
