Dear Colleagues and Friends,


After one year break it is my pleasure and privilege to invite you to join the 8th Translational DZIF School, which will be held in presence in Lübeck from 29 September – 1 October 2021. With a special focus on translational science we aim to bring together clinical and basic researchers (PhDs, PostDocs and junior group leaders) to discuss latest developments in Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology. In this year´s program major findings from the thematic translational units Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases, Gastrointestinal Infections, Hepatitis and Emerging Infections will be presented. In addition, DZIF clinical leave and MD/PhD stipendiaries will present their work in separate sessions to explore their data with established researchers in the field. Furthermore, all other participants will be given the possibility to present their work within the scope of a poster session.


I am looking forward to share with you some exciting days in Lübeck, learning from each other in the dynamic and fastidious field of Infectious Diseases Research.


See you in Lübeck!


Best regards,

Jan Rupp
