III Congress of Young Researchers in Biomedicine
November 22nd and 23rd, Hospital Universitari i Politècnic La Fe, ValenciaRegistration
The origins of this congress goes back to three years ago, when it started as a local congress in the city of Valencia. Two annual editions were celebrated as the I and II Congress of Biomedical Predoctoal students in Valencia (ConBioPreVal) in November 2014 and 2015. The conferences were such a success that it was launched nationally in 2016 as the first I National Congress of Young Researchers in Biomedicine.
This year we present the third National Congress of Young Researchers in Biomedicine, featuring new activities and renowned scientific researchers as invited speakers. The first three editions were hosted by the Principe Felipe Research Center and this time it will take place in the facilities of the Hospital La Fe in Valencia.
The main characteristic defining of this event is that it is organized by and for young researchers just starting their scientific career. More precisely, it is addressed to PhD and other undergraduate students of the Biomedicine field, allowing to gather participants from all over the country and share their knowledge and ideas about their scientific projects in an easy-going and close environment.
The congress is designed for young researchers who are currently developing their PhD or plan to start it soon, but researchers who have obtained their PhD within the last year are also welcome.
The biomedical fields reviewed in this conferences comprise from basic biology research areas to translational studies that are closer to clinical applications.
THE ORGANIZING TEAM
The scientific and organizing committee is composed exclusively of biomedical PhD students. Therefore, this conferences are made by and for young researchers, which usually are the real performers of research projects from established research groups. The members of the committee are linked to different research centers from Valencia, in order to represent and efficiently spread the event. The purpose is to annually change the venue of the conference, in order to take place in one of this fellow institutions each edition. Furthermore, we encourage attendees from other Spanish regions to take part in this initiative for the Congress to be transferred outside Valencia in future years. Next, the participating centers with members of the organizing committee are listed below.
The program of ConBioPreVal includes different social activities meant to be casual and relaxed events. Attendance to these activities is completely free and optional, but the forum is limited, so we encourage you to register in the activities you are interested in
