Preliminary Programme for EUniWell participants

Monday, 8 July 2024, 09:00-17:00 (CEST)

EUniWell Talent Hub workshops at Semmelweis University

PhD students will have the opportunity to network with each other and participate in in-person workshops related to well-being and transversal skills.

Further information about the workshop:

Target group:  Early career researchers (PhD students) from EUniWell universities only

Preliminary preparation for the workshop: Not required

Trainers: Emilie Camberlein, lecturer at Nantes Université and Rosa María Limiñana Gras, professor at the University of Murcia

Theme: Sex and gender in medicine and biomedical research

Main objectives of the workshop:

The aim of this training is to raise PhD students’ awareness of sex and gender issues in medicine and biomedical research.

During this training participants will discuss gender bias in medical care. The trainers will present the biological parameters related to biological sex, that can have an impact on health and the development of diseases (i.e. genes on sexual chromosomes and hormones). Finally, this presentation will introduce experimental models which allow to study the impact of sex related parameters on biological processes.  

The presentations will be followed by a workshop dedicated to discussion in small groups, in order to evaluate how participants could be including sex and gender in their own research and which experimental model could help them answer their research questions.

Certificate: printed and/or digital at the end of the workshop

Tuesday-Wednesday 9-10 July 2024, 09:00-17:00 (CEST)

PhD Scientific Days Conference at Semmelweis University
