“Run for young life scientists, by young life scientists”
Young Life Scientists’ Symposia (YLS) are one day scientific conferences, organized by PhD students and post-docs for their peers. The organizers are encouraged to promote networking and professional development through social events and careers sessions, as well as the scientific talks and poster sessions.
The unique format provides the chance for students and post-docs to gain valuable experience in giving formal talks to a peer audience. In addition they provide a unique opportunity for the organizing committee to develop skills involved with running an event.
Each year the Biochemical Society organizes three YLS events. One Biochemical Society YLS event, a second in collaboration with The Physiological Society and the British Pharmacological Society as a joint event, and the third in Ireland in collaboration with the Irish Area Section.
