VIBes in Biosciences
International Symposium for PhD students in Life Sciences

The VIBes in Bioscience PhD conference is an initiative from the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) that takes place in Belgium. The organizing committee consists of motivated VIB PhD students, who bring together young and ambitious scientists from all over the globe to enjoy a series of training workshops and a top-quality conference. Selected speakers are renowned in different Life Sciences research fields such as inflammation & immunology, plant biology, cancer biology, structural biology, neuroscience and microbiology.

We offer 50 travel grants in order to encourage international PhD students to attend. In September 2017, this meeting will take place in the lovely city of Ghent. Join us for VIBes 2017 and enjoy this historical picturesque city with other science lovers!
