CryoEM symposium cryoGEnic 2020- postponed!

Featured

The 2020 symposium has been postponed. It should take place in Fall 2021, maintaining the planned schedule with the same set of speakers.
The 2020 cryoEM symposium will take place here at UNIGE on November 6th, with a spectacular line-up of speakers (including Nobel laureate Jacques Dubochet). This symposium will be very interesting for all people with interest in Structural Biology and the latest developments in cryo-electron microscopy.
The registration to this meeting is free but due to the current circumstances, potentially only limited amount of seats will be available in the seminar room – of course all depending on how the situation with the virus will develop in the next months. Therefore, a homepage has been created and EVERY person that wants to attend the symposium has to register: https://cryogenic-symposium-2020.unige.ch
Live-stream will possibly also be offered to the symposium so that all talks can be attended from home, your working desks or in the other seminar rooms that will be used for live-streaming. Seats in the auditorium will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

Conference: Reconsidering conceptual change in science education in light of recent findings in the neurosciences

Featured

Recent  findings in neuroscience show that in science learning, new conceptions do not replace previous ones. Prof. Patrice Potvin, from the Univ of Montréal, will discuss the implication of these findings in neuroscience for science teaching and learning, especially with regard to conceptual change.
This conference is aimed primarily at researchers in science, education and the neurosciences.

Mercredi 26 février 14h -16h U 159 – Uni Dufour (in French)

Wednesday February 26, 6-7 pm, A150 – Sciences II (in English)
