Each session will be introduced by a presentation of an EURON scientist followed by four PhD student talks. Confirmed speakers are Prof Katie Lunnon, Prof Werend Boesmans, Prof Anne Grünewald, Dr. Paul Wieringa, Dr. Boriss Sagalajev and Dr. Yeranddy Aguiar Alpizar, who will present their their ongoing studies.
