Registrations will open in mid-July for the 9th EMBL Australia Postgraduate Symposium (EAPS) 2022.

EAPS is EMBL Australia’s annual student-developed symposium, held annually over two to three days in November.

After a long pause in our plans, finally, we are excited to welcome you to attend EAPS 2022 face-to-face on 9–11 November 2022. This year EAPS 2022 will be held in Melbourne with the option of a virtual interface.

This three-day event will feature student presentations and poster sessions along with presentations from world-renowned scientists. A special session on the burning topic- transition from academia to industry, will also be an integral part of this program. The symposium will provide an excellent opportunity for students to showcase their
research, practice public speaking, engage with other researchers, and get new perspectives on the questions they may have.

Symposium themes:

  1. Proteins and Structural Biology
  2. Genomics and Computational Biology
  3. Molecular and Cell Biology
  4. Infection and Immunity
  5. Cancer Biology
  6. Evolutionary Biology
  7. Ecology and Environmental Biology
  8. Development, Stem Cells, and Regenerative Medicine

Prizes will be awarded for all presentation formats – submit your abstract for a chance to win! Abstract submissions open in mid-July.
