SCIENCE@DKFZ - The DKFZ Internal Seminar



SCIENCE@DKFZ is a monthly internal seminar series and forms a regular platform for presenting the cutting-edge research going on at our center. It aims at increasing the dissemination of scientific results generated at the DKFZ and NCT in Heidelberg. Each edition will feature a comprehensive lecture by a DKFZ division head or alternatively two lectures by junior group leaders. These speakers will also give a general overview of their research field. In addition, recent DKFZ publication highlights will be presented as flash talks. In each edition and over each half-year long season, all six research programs of the DKFZ will be covered, with the goal to show not only the excellence but also the bandwidth of research performed at the DKFZ.

Each season is hosted and chaired by one of the six research programs. Colleagues from the Heidelberg Campus are warmly welcomed to all events.

Upcoming SCIENCE@DKFZ Virtual Event



The second session of this season's SCIENCE@DKFZ lecture series has been scheduled for October as hybrid event online and in the DKFZ lecture hall.

Tuesday, November 2nd at 4 pm with keynote lectures by Sandrine Sander and Federico Canzian.
