Lectures and Progress Reports

CiM-IMPRS students meet for a weekly lecture in which their supervisors provide basic knowledge and insights into recent developments in biology, biomedicine and imaging. Additionally, students give progress reports about their PhD projects in order to discuss scientific aims and results as well as exercising presentation skills.
