Invite a speaker!

Everyone in the IZN community, including IZN doctoral students, is welcome to invite speakers from other universities and institutions to come to Heidelberg and share their research findings. Travel and accommodation expenses can be covered up to a maximum of 500€ by the IZN.

Contact the IZN coordinator to schedule your invited speaker: IZN.coordinator@uni-heidelberg.de

Contact the IZN secretary to help arrange travel: sekretariat@nbio.uni-heidelberg.de

Tell us about your research!

All IZN investigators are invited to give concepts talks explaining the big picture behind the work going on in their labs and how it fits into our broader understanding of the function and dysfunction of the nervous system.
