This course is exclusively reserved to the members of the SIB PhD Training Network.


The SIB PhD Training Network retreat is an annual informal and interactive event offering the opportunity to their members (students of the Swiss Schools of Higher Education registered as SIB members) to meet their peers and present their PhD project (or possibly their master project for students who have just started). This year, the event will be a soft skill exercise in order to improve data visualization in presentations. This exercise will be organized by our invited speaker Dr Frédéric Schütz, group leader Biostatistics Platform (BIOS) University of Lausanne and SIB.

Objectives of the event
