"During the WCMM research school 2022-2023, I particularly enjoyed getting to know the PI's and other students and peers, as I made several good connections and new friends. The one-on-one time with the professors and guest lecturers had plenty of time set aside for asking questions, and gave a behind-the-scenes look into their careers and the steps they've taken to where they are today."

"I was a trainee in the WCMM research school 2022-2023. I really enjoyed building new professional contacts by interacting with other researchers, PhD students, and postdocs. This allowed me to expand by network and gain insights into a wide range of projects - even from completely different fields, such as physics! A highlight for me was the grant writing workshop, where I gained practical knowledge that I believe will be useful in my future career as a young researcher.”

“I joined the research school for the course 2021-2022. I had the chance to interact with a lot of fellow PhD students and PIs from all kinds of disciplines and research fields. During my time there I was also exposed to a variety of different techniques and research approaches that I could later apply to my own project(s) and my own career development. Also got very insightful talks and advice from the hand of PI's describing their experience and sharing their knowledge and experience from how to be successful grant writers, how to bring our research to the clinics to scientific ethics discussions.”

"I attended the research school during 2019-2020. As a trainee representative, I enjoyed organizing the guest speaker visits. By planning both their travel and making a schedule for the time in Lund, I have improved my organization skills. I always enjoyed the workshops a lot, particularly getting to know new techniques and getting some hands-on experience. I also had a lot of fun with the grant writing workshops where I got to collaborate with another attendee on creating a new project. We won one of the grants and actually executed the project that we had thought out!"
