The research seminar series is self-organized by PhD students of the IGK and covers new developments in biophysics, spectroscopy, structural and molecular biology, and theoretical chemistry/biophysics. The seminars comprise expert talks by SFB principal investigators, student talks, and/or practical demonstrations in the lab. Once per year, the PhD students present and document their research progress in annual reports.

Participation in the German Biophysical Society Meeting 2014

The Annual Meeting of the German Biophysical Society took place at the University of Lübeck from 14 to 17 September 2014. A total of 21 PhD students and 3 postdocs from the SFB 1078 participated and presented their recent scientific results. The numerous contributions, 22 posters and one talk given by Julian Kappler (project C1), made a significant scientific impact at the meeting. More details on the contributions by the SFB can be found here.
