Symposia and Guest Lectures

The regularly scheduled Symposia and Guest Lectures focus on emerging topics in the field of membrane biology and the structure, function, and dynamics of membrane-associated macromolecular complexes. Conferences hosted by CRC 1507 connect world-leading scientists from diverse backgrounds (biochemistry, biophysics, chemistry, cell and structural biology, medicine) with the local research community.


Annual retreats outside Frankfurt are traditionally seen as a great opportunity to present and discuss project data and student progress in a focused, yet pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. By providing insights into current research, these events also provide a platform to strengthen the corporate identity of all CRC members and to enhance collaborations.

Every two years, the IRTG also organizes PhD retreats, where students at different stages of their doctorate present their research projects.


We are very pleased that Prof. Dr. Inga Hänelt, principal investigator of CRC project 4 and head of the IRTG, has been honored by the Goethe University for her exceptional research and strong commitment to the promotion of young researchers receiving the award „Scientist of the Year“ donated by the Alfons & Gertrud Kassel-Stiftung. Congratulations!
