The third and last generation of PhD candidates of the RTG 1743 “Genes, Environment and Inflammation” is extremely pleased to invite you to the 3rd International RTG Symposium. This event will mark the end of the graduate program for our doctoral candidates.

The two day immersion into science is meant to serve as an occasion to meet outstanding experts (both from academia and industry) operating within various fields related to our research focus. We aim to create an opportunity for our doctoral researchers to gain new insights, share their work, connect and discuss within a supporting scientific environment. Agenda

Due to the current situation, the event will take place online. You can register via our RTG 1743 webpage. The workshops on the Career Day are open to all doctoral researchers of structural doctoral programmes in Schleswig-Holstein. The places are limited.
