IRTG students present their research in Japan
Three members of the IRTG (Bernd Uhl, Sascha Jakob, and Ludwig Weckbach) together with two young scientists of the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS, Martinsried/Munich) were kindly invited by Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan to present their research work at the 9th Global COE International Symposium on “Cell Migration in Biology and Medicine”. The symposium was held in Fukuoka in January 2012 and provided an excellent platform for young scientists to discuss their research topics. The German group experienced a very warm welcome and outstanding hospitality which made the conference scientifically and personally extremely delightful and valuable. Besides the fantastic academic and scientific value of this meeting, the young investigators from Germany were able to appreciate a memorable cultural exchange.
