These are many reasons you need to attend the young microbiologists' conference, but these are five good reasons you can’t afford to miss it.
1. To gain insights in cutting-edge research in Microbiology and know what others are doing, perhaps more clearly than a scientific paper, and with a twist of getting answers as soon as you are asking them.
2. To meet new people, network and share knowledge with other like-minded young scientists and experienced researchers.
3. To sharpen your skills, gain new ideas and learn how to utilise your microbiology degree more effectively in a changing world landscape and to have a competitive advantage over peers in skills development and deployment.
4. With high level of technical review, presentations at the YMC 2017 can inspire research ideas, give you insights, initiate collaborations and expose you to different styles of presentation and excellence.
5. As prizes are available to early career researchers with the best presentation (oral and poster), as well as for the best mini-proposal from the grant writing workshop, don't miss out on the opportunity to add something valuable to your career/research portfolio.
The Young Microbiologists' Conference 2017 (#ymc_2017) will happen on the 27th and 28th of June, 2017 at Babcock University, Ilishan, Remo, Ogun-State, Nigeria. The theme of the conference is: “Beyond Petri dishes: Capacity Building for Applied Research”. The conference brings together early career researchers (MSc and PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and young lecturers) in microbiology and related disciplines. The two-day conference features keynote speeches, panel discussion, workshops and invited presentations from those who are mastering their fields. Workshops will include sessions on writing winning research grants, developing and sustaining research collaborations, research ethics, data handling and scientific writing.
