The beautiful landscape of Heilbronner Land was the destination of choice for this years’s retreat of the Institute of Biochemistry II which took place from April 15th to April 17th 2015.

3 days full of scientific discussions and exchange as well as many opportunities to socialize during common events promoted the interactive spirit amongst the institute members and raised new interactions and collaborations.

Exciting guest lectures by Philip Grote (Institute of Cardiovascular Regeneration, Frankfurt), Daniela Krause (Georg-Speyer-Haus, Frankfurt) and Malte Wachsmuth (EMBL, Heidelberg) as well as a career session with representatives from academia and industry created a stimulating and motivating atmosphere for all 70 participants, ranging from young PhD students to group leaders.

Moreover, social events such as wine-tasting at a local winery as well as hiking through the vineyards, canoing on the Neckar and a guided tour through the Audi factory at Neckarsulm completed 3 successful and inspiring days at Heilbronner Land.
