Webinars for scientific exchange
The Institute of Plant Science and Microbiology (IPM) of the Department of Biology lives the interdisciplinary exchange between the individual working groups to enable both thematic synergies and the joint application and further development of innovative techniques in teaching and research. The regular webinars of the IPM Colloquium offer the opportunity to realise the scientific dialogue even under current circumstances.
The first webinar in this series took place on 14 April and was a great success with over 100 participants! Thanks to Prof. Dr. Siobhan Brady, University of California (Davis), for her contribution and to the organisers, too.
Inter-institutional and international network
The scientists of the IPM and the department come together with their international colleagues and pool their expertise to discuss current issues.
