20.08.2015: 6th Symposium "From Gene to Protein and Beyond"

Doctoral fellows of the CLIB-Graduate Cluster Industrial Biotechnology & iGRASPseed Graduate school are organising the 6th Annual Symposium “From Gene to Protein and Beyond” on 20 August 2015 at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf.

Since 2010, this student-organised symposium has presented interested students from various scientific backgrounds the opportunity to connect with renowned scientists from academia and industry. Representatives from both groups will give insights into their work and provide a base for inspiring discussions.
