Session I: The elderly and centennials
Session II: The adult period
Session III: The early life
Concept and vision
Welcome to the MTC days 2012, A Journey Through Life! Our intention this year is to integrate the scientific cornerstones at MTC, i.e. Tumor, Micro- and Immuno- Biology into three different periods of a life cycle and how environmental cues, such as diet and microorganisms, can impact our wellbeing. With this mindset, the outlined program aims to reflect ongoing research activities at the department and when applicable, presenting investigators will make an attempt to translate the relevance of their results in a disease perspective. Furthermore, as you know there are major upcoming organization changes at KI and this reshaping of our University is currently subject to intense discussions. We have therefore asked four investigators at MTC to give a five to six minute presentation on how they see the future of our research fields in the coming years.We look forward to two exciting days full of intense scientific discussions combined with laughter and pleasant social interactions.
Lars Gunnar Larsson, Sonia Lain, Velmurugesan Arulampalam, and Sven Pettersson have put together a program which is outlined below.
Monday May 14 we have a special program for all PhD students at MTC.
Tuesday/Wednesday May 15-16 there will be scientific presentations including a poster session.
To give the MTC days a broader perspective of the proposed themes, we have invited:
Professor Jeremy Nicholson, Imperial College, UK
Professor Judith Campisi, The Buck Institute, US
Both have accepted to give a keynote lecture.
The poster session will take place in the evening of May 15 and will be combined with food and drinks to encourage a vivid and intense discussion.
