Lectures and practical courses for teachers and high school students

Scientists from the departments of biology and medicine as well as from the Max-Planck Institute for biomedicine are working together in a research association, the collaborative research centre (CRC) 1348 "Dynamic cellular interfaces", to explore biomedical issues. Since biology plays an important role in many fields of life, the CRC wants to share scientific findings with the general public and offers lectures and practical courses for teachers and high school students. In this way, modern biology will find its way into schools so that students can benefit from new insights in biology.

Thanks to the support of the "Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)" participation is free of charge.

Practical courses for high school students

The CRC 1348 offers four-hour practical courses for high school students in autumn and spring, respectively. Under the guidance of experts, students will get the possibily to perform molecular genetic experiments in modern laboratories. During the practical courses different isolation methods of animal and plant DNA and polymerase chain reactions (PCR) will be implemented. Moreover, the students will get a guided tour through the institute with demonstration of different high performance microscopes. For theoretical preparation we offer a script.

The practical courses will be offered in the Institute of Neuro- and Behavioral Biology (Badestr. 9) in the morning at 8:30 am and in the afternoon at 1:30 pm. Participation requires a successful application (application form: see below).

Time periods:
16.09. - 27.09.2019 (application deadline: 30.06.2019)

Lectures for teachers and high school students

The CRC 1348 offers evening lectures for interested high school teachers and students during the Wintersemester 2019/20. Every second Monday of the month, CRC group leaders talk about new aspects of modern biology.

The lectures take place in the Institute of Neuro- and Behavioral Biology (Badestr. 9) at 7:15 pm. Thanks to the support of the "Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)" participation and lecture notes are for free. Upon request, teachers/students can get a certificate of attendance. Please register via sfb [at] uni-muenster [dot] de.
