Spring and Fall Meetings

Twice a year the Graduate School organizes international meetings - the Spring Meetings and the Fall Meetings. The meetings are attended by speakers of international renown who address current and future developments in the field of Molecular Medicine, and provide the opportunity for students to integrate themselves into the scientific community. The students give presentations or talks and seek advice for their work from professional international scientists. Additionally, poster sessions provide the possibility for all doctoral students to participate actively in the meeting and to discuss issues with the invited speakers. Thus, our meetings provide a platform for getting to know each other personally and fostering research collaborations and networking. The intermediate evaluations of our students take place during the meetings. Furthermore, the doctoral student award is presented and the graduation ceremony for students who have finished their studies takes place. The first meeting of this series took place in October 2006.

Fall Meeting 2022 will take place from October 12th-14th (Programme Fall Meeting 2022)
