Grad School Day

The Grad School Day provides general information about the IGIM and our program, and you meet colleagues from the field of infection biology and microbiology in Tübingen.

Some doctoral students present their projects, and an invited expert will give a talk about a current topic and you can learn more about getting ahead in science.

The Grad School Day takes place every term. It is compulsory for participants of the IGIM program.
