Cell Biology Lecture Series

The "Cell Biology Lecture Series" is a joint effort of the Research Groups Affolter, Engel, Hall, Hondele, Rüegg, Schier and Spang to monthly host international speakers to talk about current research and advances in cell biology. Lectures are planned to be followed by “Meet the speaker” sessions.
