Cutting-Edge Technologies, July 23, 2015

The SyNergy cluster and the graduate programs of the Life Science Campus Großhadern/Martinsried are jointly hosting an event on cutting-edge technologies in life science together with the GraduateCenter of the LMU.


Cutting-Edge Technologies, July 23, 2015

New techniques develop quickly and can revolutionize the scientific landscape. Key examples are PCR, molecular sequencing and cloning, all developed around the mid-20th century, that have transformed the pace and progress in science and have become standard tools in education, research and industry today.

But how is such a technological/methodological breakthrough accomplished? What are the pitfalls during development? What are the challenges and succeses of their application?

Hear keynote speakers who have developed groundbreaking methods (CrisprCas and Optogenetics) and have visionary ideas for the future (Connectomics). Participate in break-out sessions with local pioneers in application of a wealth of cutting-edge techniques right here on the Campus Großhadern/Martinsried.
