What our students say

  • “It was a difficult decision to leave the lab for 5 days but it is worth it” (Kevin Ferreira)
  • “Very interactive course with a non-traditional approach. The course reflects the reality of translational medicine: getting a lot of people with different backgrounds to work together as a team” (Miriam Ayuso)
  • “This course taught me things I didn’t know would even exist. The course inspired me that the PhD is more than just gaining scientific knowledge, but also to use the time to work on my personality” (Inga Hensel)
