You are excited about working in biomedicine and you like tinkering in the lab? You care about patient treatment, but you also love reading science news? Can’t decide whether your path is in the clinic or the lab? Why not both!
Get to know the flourishing Dresden biomedical landscape in Sofa Seminar style. Join the Biomedical Summer School Dresden and find out how scientists do biomedical research in Dresden, how clinicians do research and how both work hand-in-hand.
Our 3-day schedule is packed with science and fun from four strong areas present at Dresden campus: metabolism, precision oncology, neuroscience, and tissue engineering. We have talks providing insights in diverse topics, from childhood leukemia to stem cell therapy, from fasting mice to xenografts of insulin producing cells. Meet Dresden’s leading scientists in a relaxed setting and ask any question in the Sofa Chats. Learn some basic skills to survive as a scientist, from visual presentation of data to giving a stellar talk. And, speak with experts about your path into sciences – as academic, as clinician, or as clinician scientist – in the coffee break sessions. Each day is filled with social activities to allow you to meet each other in a friendly atmosphere.
We look forward to meeting you in Dresden – online!
