This year again from November 21 – 25, 2022, M2 students from the IMCBio program organized a successful international Symposium. Fourteen national and international speakers were our guests. This year’s program covered Plant Biology, Virology, Immunology, Structural – and Developmental Biology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, as well as a distinguished lecture co-organized with the Cercle Gutenberg. Three different locations hosted the presentations this year : Institut de Biologie Moléculaire des Plantes (IBMP), Institut de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire (IBMC), and the Institut de Génétique, Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire (IGBMC).
Students and lecturers had many possibilities to exchange, not only during the question time that followed the talks, but also during the coffee breaks and shared lunches.
After a busy and intensive week, we expect that all participating M1 and M2 students from IMCBio as well as their non-IMCBio peers left for the weekend with many new ideas and having made valuable contacts.
