Young Scentist Breakfast

As part of its promotion of young scientists, the Zoonoses Platform organizes an annual young scientists' breakfast on the morning of the last day of the International Symposium on Zoonoses Research. During a joint breakfast, interested young scientists can get in touch with established scientists, the so-called "Senior Scientists". The breakfast is intended to give participants the opportunity for an exchange of ideas across career stages in a relaxed atmosphere. The "Senior Scientists" present at the breakfast come from different fields of zoonoses research and vary from year to year.
Registration for the Young Scientist Breakfast is possible when registering for the symposium.

The Young Scientist Breakfast 2019 took place on 18 October 2019 as part of the Zoonoses Symposium.

The following Senior Scientists participated in 2019:

  • Dr. Laia Solano-Gallego, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain
  • Dennis Tappe, Bernhard Nocht Institute, Hamburg, Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Achim Hörauf, University Hospital of Bonn, Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Maren von Köckritz-Blickwede, TiHo Hannover, Germany

A follow-up report on the YSB 2019 and pictures of the event can be found here.

The Young Scientist Breakfast 2020 will unfortunately not take place in the usual form due to the coronavirus pandemic. Nevertheless, we will again promote the exchange between Junior and Senior Scientists within the framework of the Online Symposium 2020.

Further information will be sent to young scientists registered for the symposium 2020 soon.
