During two days, around 80 members of the CRC 1525 exchanged information on progress, further projects and current results, dealing with the interaction and processes of inflammatory reactions and immunological processes that are triggered in various heart diseases.
However not only the scientific lectures on the topic: "Interactions between heart and immune system" from the individual project groups were the focus of the event, the retreat was also accompanied by a workshop led by Prof. Dr. phil. Heather Hofmeister. The sociologist and coach for scientific working groups from Bad Vilbel shared valuable tips and suggestions on how young researchers can be integrated into scientific working processes as collegially, seamlessly and efficiently as possible.
The highlight of the evening programme was an exciting night watchman tour through the narrow streets of the city. The participants enjoyed the evening in pleasant company, while listening to the guide's stories.
For all those who can barely wait for the next meeting, we have a little announcement for you: In 2024, the CRC 1525 retreat will take place in February.
