Lipid Function in Cell, Tissue & Organ Biology

when 21 June 2020 - 26 June 2020
language English
duration 1 week

The DIGS-BB Summer School on Lipid function in cell, tissue & organ biology is a new initiative of the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB) at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). It aims at giving insight in the overarching role of lipids in metabolism, health and disease, and at offering a window to our international PhD program, the unique collaborative scientific environment on the campus and the beautiful city of Dresden.

The Summer School 2020 will partly integrate the EMBO Practical Course on Methods for studying lipids in cell biology. with top notch speakers and aims at Bachelor students and Master students.

The program consists of lectures given by local, external and alumni researchers, a poster/10 min talks session, as well as joint talks and social program with the EMBO Practical Course.

For excellent students, all-inclusive grants (travel support, accommodation, participation) will be available. We look for lipid and membrane research interested students of all scientific backgrounds, from pure physics, chemistry, biology to biophysics, biochemistry, cell biology as well as all computational disciplines.

The application for the school is via our online application system.
