Linnean Centre symposium for early career plant scientists

On March 2nd, six promising plants researchers have been invited to the Linnean Centre symposium for early career plant scientists. The aim of the symposium is to bring together postdoctoral candidates and Linnean Centre group leaders to identify common research interests and develop project ideas suitable for fellowship applications.

Starting from 9 am, each candidate will give a public 30 minute presentation via zoom.

You are all welcome to join!
