Establishment of

Baltic Biomaterials Centre of Excellence

RISEus2 Summer school in Frankfurt/Main

Event date: 26-06-2023

The RISEus2 team is very pleased to invite you to the summer school on "How to establish in vivo experiments" which will be held on site at the partner institution Goethe University Frankfurt/Main from June 26th until 30th, 2023.

In the 5-days school participants will get an overview of different kinds of in vivo research models and most importantly the relevant restrictions and obstacles in planning and performing experiments in living organisms. By actively theoretical planning of own in vivo experiments based on their own projects, participants will learn to take ethical and regulatory into account and will learn to judge if and when an experimental setup including live animals or even patients is useful and justified. Lectures will be held by experienced scientist and medical experts sharing their experience with the participants. The summer school is designed for students who have previous experience with academic research.
