A symposium to be held at LMU’s Biocenter introduces junior researchers in the biosciences to a wide range of innovative and powerful methods which have emerged over the past few years.
Recent exciting methodological advances in the Life Sciences will be the subject of a symposium on “Cutting-Edge Technologies”, which will take place at the LMU Biocenter on July 23, 2015. Twelve graduate schools and PhD programs are hosting the event in cooperation with a Cluster of Excellence and the LMU‘s Graduate Center.
Opening remarks will be given by Professor Barbara Conradt, LMU Vice-President for Research and Diversity, and Professor Ernst Ludwig Winnacker, a past President of the Deutsche Forschungsgeminschaft (DFG) and former Secretary-General of the Human Frontier Science Program. Keynote lectures presented by prominent invited speakers and a series of intensive workshops led by on-campus experts will introduce participants to selected ground-breaking technologies and their application in diverse areas of the biosciences. The conference will also provide networking opportunities, enabling junior researchers and specialists to discuss the opportunities presented by the new techniques.
Cutting-Edge Technologies builds on the success of the 2014 symposium on Responsible Research, which attracted over 300 participants. This year’s event is fully booked, but registration for places on the waiting list is still open.
