The regular group activity will consist of monthly lecture and discussion evenings organised by Apollo members. During such an evening, 1 or 2 invited speakers would present their view on the topic of discussion proposed for the event. The theme in question will always be related to translational medicine and will contain an element of controversy to promote exchange of different points of view. Speakers’ presentations are then followed by a general discussion where the audience is invited to actively participate. If these discussions overrun, they may be continued in an off-campus bar to further encourage networking and exchange between the participants. Participation to these discussion evenings will be made accessible to everyone. We believe that diversity in the background of all participants is the key to good quality discussions and exchange.
Prior to the presentation, we briefly discuss news in the translational medicine field. Members can also briefly discuss problems they encounter professionally, such as issues with funding or international experiences.
