Annual Scientific Meeting
This is an internal Oncode event only. To register you have to sign in into the community platform.
We are pleased to further inform you about the Oncode CGC Annual Scientific Meeting on 7 and 8 September. We are planning to host a hybrid event: a combination of a live event and a digital event for the whole community. Due to the COVID situation and RIVM regulations, the number of people at the live event will be restricted.
At this meeting, we will bring the community together, live and via online channels, share important scientific updates and discuss new technologies that are available to the Oncode community. We expect an exciting keynote by Vishva Dixit, vice president at Genentech.
Everybody is welcome to join the digital event. For the live event we have limited space available in the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam. We would like to accommodate everybody as much as possible, but space per day is limited to 200 people, so make sure you register soon. If you register for the live event you can register to attend one day. Online we have unlimited capacity but also for online attendance you need to register.
Please find the programme here.
Since last year’s lab booth marketplace was a huge success, this year we’d like to give all labs the opportunity to present their lab and work to the rest of the community. We would like to invite you to make a 2-minute lab video for the Online Lab Video challenge. The goal for these videos is that you show your lab, its members and your unique field of expertise in a fun way. The best video will receive a group award.
Make the video with your smart phone in landscape format.
Create a 2-minute overview of your lab activities /colleagues / or anything you like to share with the full Oncode community so everyone gets a chance to know you better. We will post these video’s as YouTube links, accessible via a link during and after the event
Science Art Prize
Science doesn’t just bring forward important findings, it also creates exciting images. Many of you develop beautiful images of all kinds in your labs, which unfortunately aren’t seen by many. In order to give visibility to the beauty of science, Oncode Institute teamed up with Frank Bos, Yuva Oz and Joost Bakker. Frank Bos is a researcher in the lab of OncodeInvestigator Anne Rios. Together with Arnout Schepers, he founded pArt of Science, a company that organizes Art competitions and prints microscopy photos professionally. Yuva Oz is a business developer at Oncode Institute and also owner of Art 4 Science. Joost Bakker co-developed a module for Master students who want to improve their skills in science visualization, called Science Vision. This module is part of TU Delfts’ unique Master’s programme Science Education and Communication. Joost is also the owner of Scicomvisuals.
Oncode, pArt of Science, Art 4 Science and Scicomvisuals are now organising the first annual Art and Science Award as part of the Annual Scientific Meeting.
The jury will decide on the 1st (1.000 euro), 2nd (750 euro) and 3rd (500 euro) prize, which will be awarded during the Annual Scientific Meeting. There will also be a prize for the public vote winner.
