Mexican Science Day

Botschaft von Mexiko in Deutschland | Aarón Borgonio, Karla Rubio, Marcel Prax, Maria Elena Torres-Padilla, Julieta Rojo-Medina

Recent results of Mexican and German research in health sciences.

The Mexican Science Day aims to bring together German and Mexican scientists in order to present the results of significant research projects in health sciences. It also seeks to encourage an interdisciplinary dialogue with the scientific and academic community and students, which could generate new collaboration opportunities for associated groups strengthening the scientific relationship between Mexico and Germany. The lectures will be given by Prof. Dr. Aarón Borgonio from the Heart Centre of the University Clinic of Cologne, Prof. Dr. Maria Elena Torres-Padilla from the Institute of Epigenetics and Stem Cells of the Helmholtz Centre of Munich, Dr. Marcel Prax from the Paul Ehrlich Institute and Dr. Karla Rubio from the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research.

PUBLIC PANEL DISCUSSION ON ZOOM. PLEASE REGISTER.

This is a digital event. If you would like to attend please book your spot by 30 October here.
