Lectures & Seminars in RTG 2099

Several seminar series will be held to expose the students to all aspects of Dermato-Oncology (0.05 ECP/h). To start with, there will be a series of lectures on the principles of general and molecular oncology within the framework of HIGS (“Progress in Cancer Research Lectures”) introducing all departments of the DKFZ and their research topics. Covering the different aspects of clinical and experimental Dermato-Oncology, the PIs of the RTG will give a structured seminar series over the course of the three-year program, starting with general aspects and problems of Dermato-Oncology in the first year. The lectures during the second and third year of the RTG series will be selected to preferentially deal with current topics and recent developments in Dermato-Oncology.

As the transition of the 1st to the 2nd cohort of PhD students takes place in the first half of 2018, the first-year curriculum of the 2nd cohort of PhD students will start during the winter semester 2018/19. Likewise, the starting point of the 3rd cohort will be adjusted to the transition of the 2nd to the 3rd cohort of PhD students. During the 3-year course, the seminar series will increasingly include general current hot research topics in the field of Dermato-Oncology. The seminars of the 2nd and 3rd year will include presentations by international guest lecturers.

In order to foster exchange between students and lecturers as well as strengthen the students’ international networking skills, the students will be given the opportunity to invite and introduce the international speakers. When the seminar is given by a guest lecturer, the students will be given the possibility for discussion after the meeting (“meet the professor”).

To enhance connectivity between the projects and to foster collaboration among PhD and MD students, a novel seminar subseries has been introduced recently alternating with the Dermato-Oncology lecture series in which two of the PhD and MD students present their projects and preliminary data for information and discussion among the students. Beginning with the 2nd cohort of PhD students, the RTG will structure this seminar series to match students with similar topics in each seminar and to guarantee a flow of talks along the general scientific structure of the RTG with its Research Areas A (Tumor Microenvironment) and B (Tumor Immunity and Immunotherapy).
