Publish and Cherish

The purpose of the "Publish and Cherish" Zoom Seminar Series is the discussion of radical and innovative ideas with the actual makers of biomedical research.
We are interested in hearing from first authors of scientific biomedical publications to learn about their area of research, but also about how their projects developed over time:

  • How did they come up with the project idea and to what extent did they modify the aims of the study?
  • Which technical issues and setbacks did they encounter and how did they resolve or circumvent them?
  • How did the publishing process go and how did they respond to the reviewers’ comments?

In addition to the exciting findings which they published, authors are encouraged to include failed experiments, artifactual data, and fun lab anecdotes.
