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.


Dr. Niels Fischer from the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences in Göttingen visits our CRC for scientific exchange of advances in single-particle cryo-EM and will give a guest lecture about „Visualizing the dynamic machinery of translation initiation in humans“ in the Biocenter on March 9th, 2023 at 13:00.
