The PerMedCoE project is one of the featured sponsors of the EMBO Workshop Computational models of life: From molecular biology to digital twins. To encourage the diversity and equality of the event, PerMedCoE is offering six grants to boost women’s representation at the event.These six grants will take the form of registration fee-waivers that will encourage physical attendance to this event.
PerMedCoE is seeking to build a more collaborative, supportive, equal and excellent scientific community by highly encouraging applications from women and underrepresented groups.
