Erasmus International Lecture Series

Translational Neuroscience & Global Health


Dear colleagues, dear students,

The success of our first Erasmus International Lecture Series in the past semester has not only encouraged us to resume our lecture series in the field of “Translational Neuroscience” but also offer a new lecture series in the field of “Global Health” in the coming summer semester 2021.

We thus invite interested students and staff members alike at your and our universities to attend both virtual lecture series, which are scheduled to run from the end of this March to May 2021.

We are delighted that representatives of our Erasmus partner universities of Caen, Istanbul, Ljubljana, Maribor, Marseille, Olomouc, Pécs, Rome, and Zagreb, as well as our colleagues in Würzburg will share their expertise in their talks within the virtual lecture series on “Translational Neuroscience” and “Global Health”:
