Bernstein Lecture Series SS 2008
Selected chapters of Biophysics written by outstanding female scientists.
This semester the Bernstein Lecture Series invites outstanding female researchers in the field of biophysics to speak in Göttingen. The scientists from the USA and Germany will not only give an overview over their work, but also allow young female researchers and students to meet experienced and successful role-models. This semester’s focus is on neural networks and brain research. On Tuesday, July 8th, Prof. Dr. Elly Nevidi from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will talk about a dynamic zone defining interneuron remodeling in the adult neocortex.
The Lecture Series is organized by female PhD students from all divisions of the Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization. Their aim is to help young female scientists in establishing a network of colleagues devoted to similar fields of research. At the same time the students can profit from the experiences the renowned lecturers made working and researching in different countries and get hands-on advice for their career planning.
The lectures are open to the public and can be a helpful experience for female students and researchers working in all fields of science. Before the talks, the invited scientists will give a short tutorial for interested students.
