Symposia and Meetings organized by MGC members


 MGC symposium 

Each year the MGC organizes a one day symposium for their members. After the symposium was canceled in 2020, the relaxation of the corona rules makes it possible to organize the symposium again this year. We hope that in the coming weeks the rules will not be tightened to such an extent that we will have to cancel the symposium after all!

The program of the symposium consists of 13 scientific lectures presented by promising, mainly young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) from the different MGC departments. The scientific part of the day is capped by a keynote speaker and the symposium is concluded with drinks and small bites.

 31th edition of the MGC symposium, September, 2023

The meeting will be organized in line with the Dutch Covid-19 rules at that time.

MGC Publieksmiddag "Wijzer over DNA" (lezingen zijn veelal in het Nederlands)  

Sinds 2007 wordt er ieder jaar op de eerste of tweede zondag van november een publiekslezing georganiseerd onder de noemer " Wijzer over DNA". In de pdf kunnen de programma's van voorgaande jaren ingekeken worden.

3 November 2019 werd de 13de editie van de publieksmiddag Wijzer over DNA georganiseerd in de Oranjerie van de Hortus Botanicus in Leiden. Het thema was "Regeneratieve geneeskunde". 

Het MGC bestuur heeft besloten om in 2020 en 2021 geen publieksmiddag te organiseren i.v.m. COVID-19. De 14de editie  is voorlopig doorgeschoven naar 30 oktober, 2022.

Toegang is gratis.
