Postdoc Symposium

The first MPI-DB and FML Postdoc Symposium with the topic “How Nature Came to be: From Molecules to Organisms” took place on November 7th, 2019 at the Max Planck campus in Tübingen.

Postdocs and late stage PhD students from the local Max Planck Institutes and the University of Tübingen got together to present and discuss their own research and to interact with each other and three inspiring external speakers over career-related round table sessions, followed by a panel discussion, and a round of “scientific speed dating”.
