The research seminar series is self-organized by PhD students of the IGK and cover 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.
