Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale


Lecture Series Cell Communication

02.02.2018, Berlin | In the 2017/2018 winter term, the Integrative Research Institute of Life Sciences at HU Berlin invites the public to a colloquium on “Cell Communication.” The colloquium features six lectures by high-profile international scientists who draw on their current research to present the entire spectrum of cell communication, from cells communicating across long distances to direct cell-to-cell communication. Communication can take place between cells of the same type as well as been different cell types of an organism or different organisms. On March 1, 2018, at 4 p.m., Dr. Shelly Tzlil from the Technion in Haifa, Israel, will give the fourth lecture in the series and talk about Mechanical communication in cardiac cell beating.”



The IRI Colloquium is aimed at students, doctoral candidates, researchers as well as the interested public.

IRI Colloquium

The IRI Colloquium is an event series focusing on a different topic each semester. Internationally renowned scientists are invited to provide insight into their current research. In addition to being able to participate in the discussions that are part of the lectures, young scientists are also given the opportunity for individual conversations to talk about and receive inspiration for their own research. The Schering Stiftung supports the colloquium, since it addresses important aspects of basic research in the life sciences and encourages the cross-disciplinary networking of Berlin-based scientists.
