Biography: Khalil Helou received PhD in Molecular Genetics at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden in 2000. After a postdoc period at the NIH / NCI Bethesda in the United States, I was appointed a position in 2003 as group leader responsible for breast cancer research at the Department of Oncology at Sahlgrenska Hospital in Gothenburg. As a researcher, I gained extensive experience about how to manage a research team and supervise undergraduate and PhD students. I am currently supervising two PhD students, one postdoc and co-supervising six PhD students, and I was the main supervisor for six PhD students and co-supervisor for eight PhD students, resulting in six and eight doctoral dissertations, respectively. My role as supervisor could be summarized by: (1) coaching the students and not leading them, (2) introducing them to the area of research, (3) introducing them to other researchers, clinicians, etc., (4) developing competence, (5) selecting relevant PhD courses and conferences and (6) applying for research grants, etc. In addition to holding several lectures for PhD courses, I was the course coordinator and lecturer for three PhD courses. My publication list extends to about 100 scientific articles in international peer-reviewed journals. In addition to serving as a journal referee for several international peer-reviewed journals, I am the Associate Editor of the BMC Cancer journal and a committee member of the permanent PhD examining board at Sahlgrenska Academy. I was appointed since 2019 a position as director of PhD studies at the Sahlgrenska Academy.
