NeuroDoWo 2019

This year´s 30th Neurobiology Doctoral Workshop took place from 28th to 30th of August in Wuerzburg.

Junior scientists from Germany and abroad met for an interdisciplinary scientific exchange in neuroscience.  Participants were exclusively PhD students, thus fostering interactions between scientists of the same educational level. Work was presented by either a talk or a poster. The venue this year was the Wuerzburger Residenz which provided a perfect environment for a very successful workshop with lively discussions. The NeuroDoWo which is organized by PhD students has been running since 1990 and annually changes the location as well as the organization committee.

Eureka 2017

The 2017 Eureka Symposium, organized by PhD students of the GSLS from the University of Wuerzburg, provided an excellent opportunity for graduate students from all disciplines to present their original research and meet with invited speakers. This year was marked by the participation of two neuroscientists, Franck Polleux and Rainer Friedrich, who shared their latest findings. The two-day event included talks from top-level scientists and PhD students, poster presentations from more than 200 graduate students, image and essay writing contests. Eureka’s social event featured the participation of Jorge Cham, creator of "PHD Comics", who gave an entertaining lecture about “The power of procrastination.”

World Association for Stress-Related and Anxiety Disorders (WASAD)

lnternational conference in which fear, anxiety and stress-related disorders were discussed in a multi-disciplinary approach that ranged from the study of the genetic basis of PTSD to translational clinical studies that target the treatment of these disorders. Invited guest speakers such as Kerry Ressler (Harvard Medical School) and Rony Paz (Weizmann Institute of Science) eloquently presented thieir thought-provoking findings relating the molecular, genetic and neural circuit mechanisms underlying fear processes through an integration of animal and human models.
