Please join us for our #Girls’Day 2024 event! We start the day with a campus tour and then visit a lab. Lunch will be joined by a series of short lectures by our Berlin-Bochum Memory Alliance scientists. Each scientist will speak about their CV and project work in their respective project. We hope to inspire you to make an internship in one of our project labs!
