Today the Joint Meeting of the 25th Annual Conference “Modern Aspects of Biochemistry and Biotechnology” joint with the Conference of the Young Scientists of the Division of Biochemistry, Physiology and Molecular Biology National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (CYS-2017) was finished.
We are pleased to announce the winners of competition of young scientists. Honourable Scientific Committee scored all oral and poster presentation based on their scientific impact, quality of presentation and answers to questions. 14 Doctors and Professors granted each presenterer by points - from 1 to 10, At the Closing Ceremony the Head of Committee Prof. Lyudmyla Drobot announced the list of winners. She also stressed on the high quality of all presentations. The Committee awarded those of them who received more then 8 of 10 in average.
