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



To continue our scientific exchange, our SCIENCE@DKFZ will now start with its second season.

The 7th edition will take place on Thursday, September 24th at 16:00 and will include a keynote lecture by Mathias Heikenwälder.

As always, this will be framed by presentations of first authors of an exquisite collection of recently published papers.

  • Fuwei Shang: Fate and transcriptome of hematopoietic stem cells
  • Ahmed Sadik: Promotion of tumor progression by IL4I1
  • Yu Tian: Risk-adapted recommendations for colorectal cancer screening
  • Anne Wentink: Amyloid disaggregation by the human Hsp70 chaperone
