The Future Now: Emerging Leaders in Biomedicine


We are delighted to announce the first edition of the symposium "The Future Now: Emerging Leaders in Biomedicine". This event is specifically tailored for advanced postdoctoral researchers and junior Group Leaders who are at the forefront of the vibrant biomedical community of the Barcelona area. Join us at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC) on the 21st of September (2023). This Symposium is co-organized by the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), the Vall d'Hebrón Institute of Oncology (VHIO), the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), the Institute of Molecular Biology of Barcelona (IBMB), the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the University Pompeu Fabra, Department of Medicine and Life Science.   

This symposium will be a unique opportunity for emerging leaders in biomedicine of the region to network, showcase their cutting-edge research, and foster collaborations. By participating in this event, early-career researchers will gain visibility, build valuable connections, and contribute to strengthening the local scientific ecosystem.   

The program features a rich scientific agenda encompassing diverse disciplines within biomedicine, with oral presentations from distinguished young researchers covering basic and translational research, as well as cutting edge technologies. We will hold an engaging round table discussion focused on the relevant challenges faced by researchers at different stages of becoming independent investigators. Please find the program of the Symposium here.

The Emerging Leaders Symposium receives the support of Miltenyi Biotec, Macrogen, BGI Genomics, Bonsai Lab & Labclinics.


In the framework of the Symposium, we have created the Emerging Leaders Book. This Book gathers short presentations on the research carried out by some of the participants, with the aim of giving them visibility and fostering scientific collaborations.    You can check out the Emerging Leaders Book here.

By coming together, we can shape the future of biomedicine, establish enduring connections, and contribute to the advancement of science in our local community and beyond
