The Scientific Symposia

The UGMLC School acts as the coordinating structure that facilitates the participation of UGMLC faculty and students in lung-related Training Schools, Symposia, Workshops, and Seminars organized within the framework of the five-campus German Center for Lung Research. Additionally, the UGMLC School organises occasional Scientific and Career Development Symposia. Information about upcoming and recently concluded Training Schools, Symposia, Workshops, and Seminars may be found here. At the end of this webpage, an archive of UGMLC School Scientific and Career Development Symposia may also be found.
