    International Symposium organized by the Students of the Graduate School of Life Sciences

    Writing Contest

    In the Writing Contest, PhD students are encouraged to write a creative essay about their research. These stories are not only intended for peers in their field but should also be for the layman without a scientific background. In past years, successful competitors have written essays pertaining not just to their research field but have also addressed interesting facts about their research question, common scientific misconceptions about their field and incorporated them in entertaining stories of their scientific endeavours.
