23.09.2014 - On 20 September 2014 EMTRAIN contributed to a PhD workshop held in Cologne, Germany, in advance of this year’s Ernst Klenk Symposium in Molecular Medicine.

At the symposium itself, which was held on 21-23 September 2014, EMTRAIN was present with an on-site information booth.

Around 20 PhD students attended the workshop dealing with the topic of translational research. EMTRAIN presented their concepts about interdisciplinary collaboration between academia and industry and the opportunities and challenges freshly-graduated biomed-PhDs are facing when planning to work in the private sector. LifeTrain, public-private-partnership PhD workshops, and on-course® were central parts of the presentation given by Christa Janko and Mike Hardman, both of EMTRAIN.

Thanks to the PhD students attending the workshop and to the many visitors at the EMTRAIN booth. A special thank you goes to Debora Grosskopf-Kroiher and the team of the Center for Molecular Medicine Cologne (CMMC) for giving EMTRAIN prominent visibility at their event.
