- GGL Photo Exhibition
Colorful and mysterious
Spectacular pictures from the Life Sciences
On July 7th, 2017, we opened our anniversary photo exhibition at the IFZ (Interdisciplinary Research Centre) of the Justus Liebig University. The exhibition shows multifaceted impressions of the lives of the doctoral candidates of the GGL.
Until October 30th, 2017, visitors can have a look at photographs that show microscopic images, lab work, scientific field trips, and leisure activities. Thus, the colourful photos will provide exceptional insights not only into the inner life of cells and diverse organisms, but also into the work and life of some of our members.
The photographs were submitted to the picture award contest of the last ten years' Annual Conferences.
