The Conference Team
The Conference Team is organizing the Heidelberg Forum for Young Life Scientists, an international, inter-institutional and interdisciplinary symposium held at the DKFZ in Heidelberg and consists of PhD students from the following research institutes in Heidelberg:
- Exzellenzcluster CellNetworks
- Center for Molecular Biology (ZMBH) Heidelberg
- European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Heidelberg
- The Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology (HBIGS)
- Heidelberg University Biochemistry Center (BZH)
- Max Planck Institute for Medical Research Heidelberg (MPImF)
The aim of the Forum is to facilitate communication among the students of the different research institutes and to provide a platform for the interaction between young researchers and leading scientists worldwide. Since each research institute in Heidelberg focuses on distinct aspects of life science, the Heidelberg Forum for Young Life Scientists aims to provide a forum where professionals with diverse backgrounds can come together to discuss and exchange new ideas and to build contact networks.
The third edition of the Forum will take place at the DKFZ in Heidelberg, Germany on June 6th and 7th 2013 and will mainly evolve around Stem Cell Biology, Omics, Infections and Immunology, and Biotechnology. Beside lectures given by prominent keynote speakers and young group leaders from all over the world, the program will provide PhD students with the chance to present their own research. Furthermore, the program will include workshops presenting cutting-edge research tools as well as get-together events as an opportunity to communicate with the speakers and the other participants.
