Unfortunately, we have to inform you that we have decided to cancel the Summer School Biotransformations 2020 in view of the current developments regarding the spread of coronavirus. To secure the health of our guests and employees is our top priority and we are taking it very seriously. We very much regret the cancellation and are currently examining the possibility of postponing the Summer School Biotransformations to a later date. We will publish updated information in due time.
Biotransformations have become an important tool in all areas of industry, where high yielding chemo-, regio-, and enantioselective reactions often are critical.
To increase efficiency of new biotechnological processes it is important that scientists from the diverse fields of chemistry, biology and process engineering work efficiently together in research and development.
The aim of the Summer School Biotransformations in 2020 is
All talks, lectures and posters at the Summer School Biotransformation will be presented in English.
Speakers will stay at least for one night to enable an intensive exchange and discussion among all participants about scientific topics and career opportunities.
PhD students and post-docs have to contribute a poster and a one page abstract in English presenting their work. Posters will be presented in "2 minute speed lectures" as a part of the official scientific programme and will also be discussed during poster sessions.
The number of participants is limited to 70 persons, enabling close interactions of the young academics with leading experts in the field of biotransformation.
