Welcome to the AMeeGuS 2016 joint meeting website!

The 10th Annual Meeting of Gulbenkian Students (AmeeGuS) will take place from the 15th to the 19th of May 2016 at Hotel do Sado in Setúbal.

AMeeGuS was traditionally an internal meeting of the PhD students of the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) organized by second year PhD students which aimed to create an informal atmosphere where students developing their PhD work at the Institute could share and discuss their work with their peers.

This year will be different. To celebrate the 10thanniversary, we are going to have an international joint retreat with PhD students from CRG (Centre for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona). As such, the name “AMeeGuS” is more a keepsake from previous editions of the event than an accurate descriptor of this one.

To inspire students as well as give them feedback, three keynote speakers – eminent scientists from different fields of biology – as well as a few scientists from within IGC are going to be present at the retreat. Additionally, our "hermanos" from Spain have invited a fourth speaker for our joint retreat!

Keep an eye on the website for more updates as AMeeGuS draws nearer! We expect it to be legendary and hope that you do too!
