This Sunday the whole Dioscuri Centre is going to Ploen (north of Germany) to participate in a research workshop (5-9 September). This is the first time since the opening of our centre that we can physically visit our collaborators at MPI Evolutionary Biology. We have already had a few guests from Ploen (Amanda, Michael) and we are now reciprocating. Hopefully, we will bring in only good vibes and not the universally-dreaded infectious disease!
Apart from talks by our group members and the local researchers, we will also have a scientific speed-dating session and dedicated slots for one-to-one and group discussions.
Many thanks to Amanda Azevedo and Michael Raatz (local researchers) as well as Ursula Kruetzfeld and Maren Lehmann for organizing the workshop.
