- 12th Annual GGL Conference 2019
The GGL invites you to the 12th Annual Conference on September 04 and 05, 2019 in the Physics lecture hall (Heinrich-Buff-Ring 14, Giessen). The GGL doctoral researchers of all ten interdisciplinary research sections will contribute to the programme and present their recent research results.

The brand new application portal of the GGL is currently open for applications for membership in the GGL as well as the PhD Programme of the Faculties of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine starting in winter semester 2019. Applications for internal candidates applying to the GGL has been extended until 18 August 2019.
- Pathways into Life Science Professions
Pathways into Life Science Professions is a training and mentoring programme for international and German doctoral candidates of the GGL. During your doctoral studies, you already need to prepare yourself for your entry into the life science job market. It is your chance to acquire profound future-orientated skills!
- Lehre 4.0
The use of new media in the university can mean many benefits for teachers and students alike. But some questions may pop up: Which possibilities does new technology offer for the support of my teachings? What about legal issues? With our E-Learning Lunch Bag Sessions, it is our aim to offer you help, the possibility for exchange with your colleagues and maybe the inspiration for new ideas. The event will take place on a regular basis, starting upcoming winter semester 2018/2019.
- Testimonials of our Alumni
While we hosted our Life Science Bridges Event in the summer of 2017, we interviewed some of our alumni about their time as a member of the GGL. We also asked them to pass some advice and experience on to new generations of young researchers. Take a look at their testimony to find out, where they are now and what they have to say.
