Sixty outstanding first and second year PhD students from around Australia will attend the 5th EMBL Australia PhD Course in Sydney. The two-week residential course will be held at the University of New South Wales between July 1 and 13.

Modelled on the compulsory pre-doc training program of the prestigious European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the course covers a wide range of topics – from epigenetics and bioinformatics to translational and clinical sciences – exposing students to the latest ideas in molecular biology.

Sessions held by international guest speakers and researchers from around Australia will provide students with an overview of the full range of life science research and infrastructure available in Australia, as well as useful tools and ideas for their projects and a network of scientific contacts across the country.

There are no course fees and once students are in Sydney, EMBL Australia will provide accommodation and most meals.

Topics to be covered include: systems biology, induced pluripotent stem cells, integrative genomics, synthetic biology, transgenic animal models, optogenetics, protein engineering and biology, RNA biology and more.
