CRC 1182 Metaorganism Seminar

With this seminar series, the CRC 1182 aims to bring the young scientists (PhD students and postdocs) from the broader field of host-microbe interactions together. This event is meant to give the young researchers of the CRC 1182 a chance to interact and communicate with each other. The CRC 1182 strives to have a combination of 30 min talks from a PhD student and a postdoc and speakers should ideally be from different CRC 1182 subprojects. PhD students and postdocs are expected to attend. The speakers of the last seminar are always organizing the next seminar, including some snacks and drinks.

The seminar usually takes place from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Center for Molecular Biosciences (ZMB) (Am Botanischen Garten 11, 24118 Kiel) in the seminar room at the 4th floor.
