DDc Lunch Retreats

DRESDEN-concept (DDc) started in 2021 the new format DDc Lunch Retreat.
Future-oriented topics with a high scientific potential that have been identified and proposed by the Scientific Area Committees (SACs) and/or the DDc Executive Board, will be shortly presented by key scientists to interested DDc members in order to get feedback and to sound out cooperation possibilities.

DDc Lunch Retreat

The DDc Lunch Retreats will continue in 2024 and take place quarterly.

The next DDc Lunch Retreat is coming up on March 7, 2024, from 12:00 to 13:00.
The biochemist Professor Dr. Oliver Bruns, who has been Professor of Functional Imaging in Surgical Oncology at the Medical Faculty of TU Dresden and the NCT/UCC Dresden since 2022, will be the Speaker.

Topic of the Lunch Retreat: “Biomedical Imaging beyond the Visible – Fluorescence Imaging in the Shortwave-Infrared”

The language of the DDc Lunch Retreats is English. Scientists from all DDc institutions are cordially invited. Research group leaders and post docs are very much welcome.

Registration starts on February 22, 2024.
