Aim and content
This workshop does not grant ECTS credit. The workshop is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. Anyone can apply, but if you are not a PhD student at the Graduate School, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. After the enrolment deadline, available seats will be allocated to the waiting list.

The workshop is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School). All other participants must pay the course fee.

At this workshop you will learn how to design and draw scientific illustrations for your papers and posters with the free online service called BioRender.
BioRender is perfect for the job, since it has a ton of free stock illustrations that are free to use.

We will also look at some of the best places on the net to find scientific illustrations to use in your work, so you do not have to illustrate everything from scratch.

At the workshop you will be introduced to:
• The basic overview of the program
• How to find and modify remade content
• How to draw your own illustrations and how the tools work
• You will learn how to make your own illustrations, like a full Cell environment
• We look at how to make a Journal or a full poster with BioRender
