Tag der “Deutschen Zentren der Gesundheitsforschung”

Welcome to the “Tag der Deutschen Zentren der Gesundheitsforschung” at the University of Lübeck which will be held on November 30, 2018 from 15:00 to 20:00 in the foyer of the CBBM.


This event is meant to foster collaborations among the 4 centers and to discuss potential joint future research agendas. We are happy to welcome Prof. Dr. med. Otmar Wiestler, president of the Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft, as a key note speaker. Furthermore, 4 talks will introduce the research agendas of the DZHK, DZIF, DZL, and DZD. A panel discussion with our president (Prof. Gillessen-Kaesbach) and 4 representatives of the local centers will complement the afternoon. Later, we will offer the stage to our junior scientists. Flash-Talks and poster presentations will hopefully stimulate the scientific discussions.

Full agenda and registration form can be found at

Leducq meeting in Lübeck

In 2013 we have been awarded by the Leducq foundation a trans-atlantic network “CADgenomics”. The funding is for 5 years and is meant to be invested in the “Understanding of the genetics of coronary artery disease”. We meet on a regular basis at the different partner sites, after Los Angeles, Munich, San Diego, and Leicester, this year we will meet in Lübeck.


We are happy to welcome the members of our consortium here. The meeting will take place in the European Hansemuseum.

Here you can see some photos from our meeting. These 3 days were full of discussing impressive scientific data. More about the meeting can be found in our blog.

Uni im Dialog

Every year the University presents projects from master and doctoral students to the public. This important and interesting event, called “Uni im Dialog” will take place this year at St. Petri on June 8th from 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

This event is meant to explain in plain language  research projects to the public who is usually not familiar with these topics.

Every year it is challenging to find a way to present complex research question so that people without prior knowledge do understand what we actually are doing. Also members of the IIEG will try to present their latest results about cardiovascular genetics in this way. To make this challenge even more attractive to the students the best posters will be awarded with a poster prize.

See you in St. Petri!
