11th DFG Graduate College Retreat – Erlangen-Tübingen-Würzburg
From July 5-6, the PhD students presented and discussed their latest advances in immunology and immunotherapy research with members of the immunology programs of the Universities of Erlangen, Tübingen and Würzburg in Obertrubach, located in the Fränkische Schweiz (Franconia Switzerland). This joint retreat of three DFG graduate colleges provides an excellent platform of scientific interaction. Over the years it served as a starting point for many fruitful collaborations, e.g. our recent joint-project with Prof. Dominik Hartl’s group from Tübingen was published in the journal Cell Host Microbe in 2015.
