BioDay Delft

This spring, BioDay returns to showcase the biodiversity of Delft. BioDay is open to the whole TU Delft community, from students to deans. BioDay will bring together for one afternoon people from all scientific backgrounds interested in biology.

Come to share and hear about new and exciting science, socialize with colleagues from all faculties, inspire, be inspired, cross-fertilize and plant the seeds of the next generation of world-leading biology-related research at TU Delft.

This year we have joined forces with the BIO-engineering institute, and on March 16 2017 the BioDay afternoon will kick off with a keynote lecture by Prof. R. Fouchier from Erasmus MC: Virus discovery and characterization, a century after BeijerinckThis lecture will be followed by a poster soundbite session, a poster presentation session (including poster prizes), and a borrel with live music. 

Please mark your calendars, and stay tuned for further information in the new year.
