Tomorrow starts the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Train2Target network.
Students and researchers have spent the last hours travelling to Grenoble, in the heart of the French Alps, for another gathering and discussion of the latest results that they've got.
This year, we have as invited speakers Hans-Georg Sahl (U. Bonn), Joen Luirink (VU-NL), André Zapun (IBS), and from our ITN Cuong Vuong (AiCuris) and Paola Sperandeo (UNIMI).
We expect the meeting to be a great success!
Carlos, Arancha, Elisa and Tiago had some posters presented during the meeting.
It was an amazing chance to discuss their research topics with scientists and students from all over the world.
The next Greath Wall Symposium is approaching fast. Between 25 and 27th of September, it will take place in the Pasteur Institute (Paris) one of the biggest gatherings of scientists and researchers in bacterial cell wall topics.
Some ESRs will attend, among these Carlos and Tiago.

Recently we upload into our YouTube channel (@Train2Target) another of our Science Slams, in a group of videos devised to explain who we are, what we do, what is our goal.
The most recente one was made by ESR15 Carina Matias. You can check this video, and all the other Science Slams produced so far, in our YouTube page (@Train2Target).

Recently our ESRs and some of the PIs visited Brussels to attend a workshop on grant/scientific writting and networking (hosted by Dr Jean-François Collet and organized with Drs Ian Henderson and Cuong Vuong).
A panel of invited speakers (Michael Mourez, Despoina Mavridou, Andrew Jermy and Sue Tonks among the ranks) with years of experience allowed the ESRs the opportunity to contact with an applied view on basic frameworks of every scientist, from tips on how to write good articles and on the peer-review process, on how to interact and approach peers during meetings and conferences.
Despite the always changing weather, the ESRs had an exciting time in Brussels.
Over the last months the Train2Target ESRs have been working on creating short videos to explain in an easy format what our project is all about. In total eight videos - Science Slams - have been developed and are now online on our Train2Target YouTube channel. The Science Slams explain the purpose of the Train2Target project and highlight the importance of why Train2Target’s approach towards new generation of antibiotics is highly relevant and much needed.
The videos combine easy understandable language with creative illustrations and clear graphics created by our artistic ESRs. In case you want to be kept updated, subscribe to the channel Train2Target or like and share the videos:
