Public lecture series "Theoretical and experimental quantitative cell biology"

As part of the Giersch - Summer School & International Conference

To gain a more comprehensive understanding of both simple molecular processes, such as the mode of action of an enzyme, and the complex behavior of organisms, the collaboration of scientists from a wide range of disciplines is necessary. In our public lecture series from February 22 to March 4, 2021, interested parties can experience exciting insights into the diverse world of modern cell biology. Renowned experts from academia and industry will provide insights into their research work and visions of future developments. The topics come from artificial intelligence, microscopy, modeling but also the practical application of research will be addressed.

To enable as many interested participants as possible to attend, the lectures will be held partly as lunchtime lectures and partly as evening lectures. All lectures will be held in English.

The public lectures are part of the Giersch Summer School & Conference, which is organized by the Giersch Foundation and the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS) in cooperation with the scientific networks DynaMem, CMMS, 'Xidian-FIAS Joint Research Center' (XF-JRC), the Rhine-Main Universities and the graduate program GRADE - IQbio.

For the 5th time, the STIFTUNG GIERSCH enables FIAS to bring together international greats on a current topic. This year, for the first time, the event will take place completely digitally.
