23 Feb 2016 - LOEWE Ub-Net PhD student and postdoc retreat, Rauischholzhausen, Germany.
From 22nd to 23rd of February 2016, the LOEWE Ub-Net as well as associated PhD students and postdocs convened in the historical walls of castle Rauischholzhausen, the seminar house of the University of Gießen.
In two days, all students and postdocs presented their projects and the discussion lead was rotated amongst the participants.
This created a very interactive and productive exchange of ideas, experiences and advices. New collaborations were established and existing contacts strengthened. Besides, two external guests gave valuable insights into the systems of industry and academia as well as into the world of targeting influenza viruses for therapy. “The retreat is worth a repetition” was the unanimous opinion of the students afterwards.
