First visit of GRK 2381 doctoral researchers in Boston in November 2019

With support from the Reinhard Frank-Stiftung, four of our doctoral researchers (M. Barresi, A. Böttcher, T. Pham, M. Roeßing) and our training coordinator (Prof. R. Lukowski) were able to make a short-term trip to our partners in Boston in November 2019. This visit was extremely useful to get in touch with host PIs and their laboratories and to establish solid grounds for the future exchange of junior scientists. Our doctoral researchers also presented a poster of the GRK 2381 at the cGMP Forum in Boston and had the opportunity to network with pharma industry. For a full version of their report on their first academic Boston experience, see here.
