28.06.2018 - Visit of the jGBM Heidelberg at EMBL Heidelberg

On the 28th of June we visited the world famous European Molecular Biology Laboratory here in Heidelberg. It was a great experience to get to know the research which is conducted at this institute. First of all, we met at the advanced training center (ATC) which is the main building of the campus and resembles a DNA double helix. We got an exciting introduction into the EMBL structure and career possibilities. Afterwards we could ask questions about possible internships or the PhD program during a short breakfast with coffee and brezels. Furthermore, we heard an interesting talk from a PhD student at EMBL in Heidelberg about her PhD thesis. The topic was about high-resolution microscopy to analyze the virus entry into the nucleus. It was a great opportunity to ask further questions about the life of a PhD at EMBL. The PhD student also showed us around in her laboratory and gave us an introduction to her self-made high-resolution microscope. The visit ended with a tour around the ATC building from where you have a great view over Heidelberg. After the tour, we also visited the laboratory of Philipp (one of our jGBM members) who is doing his PhD at EMBL. It was exciting to see how the newly evolved high-resolution technology PALM/STORM works and how the microscopes look like.
