The 5th Biopolis Dresden PhD Symposium took place on March 7 as a hybrid event. The symposium was launched in 2016 and is organised by PhD students for PhD students. The one day symposium brings together Natural Sciences PhD students from all graduate programs in Dresden and provides a forum to get to know each other and promote scientific exchange. The symposium featured a number of talks, chalk talks and posters by students. Stephan Grill and Barbara Ludwig delivered keynote addresses. The symposium also included a workshop on Speed-Reading by Friedrich Hasse.
The organizing team hopes that the annual symposium can take place now every year again, after a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to further develop the Dresden PhD research community.
