On Thursday April 26th, 2018 the 14th edition of the D.Day will take place!

This event is organized by the Association of PhD students and Assistants of the Faculty of Biology and Medicine and supported by the Doctoral school of the faculty.

D.Day is a research day whose aim is to illustrate the wide variety of the topics studied in the Faculty, either via poster presentations or lectures given by scientists of international renown.

Moreover, like last year, the committee will select some PhD students who would like to give an oral presentation about their research.

The participation with presentation of a poster is credited by 0.5 credits for the FBM PhD Doctoral School (cf. “general information”). In addition, PhD students exhibiting the best posters or the best oral presentations will receive an award!

Even though most of the participants are PhD students or post-docs, the D.Day is open to all scientists. Participants from other institutions than UNIL are also more than welcome to join us!

Supported by the Doctoral School of the FBM, the D.Day is a well recognized research event. We are looking forward to meeting you there!
