HiLIFE NC and FIMM director candidates scientific vision talk

Speaker: Satu Palva
Neuroscience Center (NC) director candidate
“Neuroscience Center – The connector hub for translational neuroscience”
As part of the HiLIFE Neuroscience Center (NC) and Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM) director recruitment process, the top candidates selected by an appointment committee are invited to visit Meilahti campus.
The aim of these visits is to provide the candidate an opportunity to meet the community, and vice versa. For NC, these candidates are Michael Halassa and Satu Palva, while FIMM also has two candidates, Björn Nilsson and Samuli Ripatti, attending. The visits will be arranged over several weeks in March – April 2023.
The four above-mentioned candidates will give scientific vision talks, which are open for the entire University of Helsinki community to attend. During the 40-minute talk, the candidates have an opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas regarding the future scientific directions of the HiLIFE institute they are proposing to take leadership of. Additionally, they will discuss how their previous achievements and ongoing/future research complements and supports the presented vision. The scientific vision talk also outlines the candidates plan to guide the unit in question towards its full potential within HiLIFE and the University of Helsinki. At the end, the floor is open for audience to ask questions.
Below you will find the days and times for each individual talk. Please note that these are only arranged in person in Meilahti campus (no hybrid participation available).
You are all warmly welcome to participate and have a chance to interact with the potential new HiLIFE unit directors!
