Lecture Series

The lectures are scheduled for Fridays at 09.00 am.

Lectures are held in seminar room E3 in the MPI-HLR building located at Ludwigstr.43.
Depending on the topic, lectures will be about 45-60 minutes long, plus discussion.

The lecture series consists of 40 lectures over two years and four written examinations. Aim is to provide a condensed recapitulation of basic knowledge on biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and physiology.

In addition, the lecture series gives students from different background the chance to achieve a knowledge level serving as a basis for a successful thesis.
