SFB LIPID HYDROLYSIS Seminar and Guest Speaker Series

The SFB LIPID HYDROLYSIS aims to attract outside visitors for lectures to reinforce knowledge exchange within the international scientific community. The guest speaker series will start in autumn 2019 to facilitate and encourage external collaborations and to provide possibilities for scientific interaction for PIs, team members and students.
Intervall: usually every first Thursday of the month, 16:00 (4:00 pm)
