We would like to invite you to our next Lunch Talk for the 20th of October at 11:00. This series is organized by the Postdoc Network and BioMed X, with the goal of discussing science and data in a relaxed environment with tasty snacks.

Our speaker will be Marco Binder, a leader of the DKFZ research group "Dynamics of early viral infection and the innate antiviral response". His talk will be:

Preparing the Battlefield – How Cells Maintain Their Vigilance Against Viral Intruders

After the talk, lunch will be provided in the foyer to encourage discussion between the participants.

When: Thursday, 15th June 2023, 11:00 am.
Where: DKFZ Communication Center (Rooms K1/K2), Im Neuenheimer Feld 280, Heidelberg

We are happy to announce that the DKFZ PostDoc Network (PDN) and BioMed X Innovaton Center launch a new monthly scientific networking event -"Lunch Talk Series"- at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ).

With the “Lunch Talk Series” group leaders from the BioMed X Innovation Center and the DKFZ PostDoc Network invite other life science scientists to join them for a monthly scientific exchange.

Each “Lunch Talk” will start at 11:00 a.m. with a scientific presentation in one of the research areas: cell biology, immunology, bioinformatics, neuroscience, epigenetics, and nanomaterials. In line with the topic, each “Lunch Talk” will be hosted by one of BioMed X's research group leaders and by the DKFZ PostDoc Network.

The talk will be followed at 12:00 p.m. by a sponsored walking lunch for all participants in order to encourage informal discussions and cross-institutional exchange. Participation is free of charge and open to all researchers and students in the field of life sciences.
