About Genetics Fridays
Genetics Fridays are held every Friday at the Centre of Fertility and Health. This is an informal venue for all employees at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and collaborators who are working with genetics, planning to implement genetics in their work, or merely have an interest in genetics. There is room for presentations and/or discussions, where participants can share knowledge and experience, come up with ideas and discuss projects and methods. The big meeting room at the centre (room 201) is reserved every Friday from 13.00-14.00, available for meetings or discussions. Some Fridays there will be presentations on selected topics, methods or projects. These presentations will be announced in our event calendar. We make waffles for everyone at 12.30!
Contact Kristine Løkås Jacobsen if you have ideas on interesting topics we can address, or if you want to present something yourself.
