Progress in Ophthalmic Research

The seminar “Progress in Ophthalmic Genetics and Pathophysiology of the Retina” will be replaced by a general “Progress in Ophthalmic Research” seminar (S08SOPH06), starting this winter term.

Since more groups will be involved, some changes are required, as summarized in the following:

  • The seminar will take place every Wednesday from 9:00 – 10:00 in the big lecture hall of HNO, Elfriede-Aulhorn-Str. 5. Please find a preliminary schedule for the winter semester 2016/17 in the table below.
  • The seminar primarily targets advanced MSc (only for their final report) and PhD students as well as postdocs. Of course, group leaders and advanced researchers are not strictly excluded, but this seminar is rather meant as an opportunity for early-stage researchers to report, practice talks and get feedback from a broad, friendly crowd.
  • Preferred presentation forms are:
    • final report of a MSc or PhD thesis
      (30 minutes; with the second slot preferentially left open for discussions, feedback etc.)
    • progress report
      (25 minutes; postdocs and advanced PhD students)
    • project presentation
      (25 minutes; preferentially postdocs, advanced researchers and PIs)
