Science Rally 2017, 04.02.2017

Young researchers went on a journey of discovery through Poppelsdorf on the 4th of February, 2017. At the LIMES Institute - one of the participating institutes - the students could learn what kind of cells are active in the immune system and how they look under a microscope. Podcast in German


Science Rally 2016, 23.01.2016

The Bonn/Popplesdorf science rally hosted young explorers aged 13 to 16 years. About 150 participants had fun to discover the exhibitions and research challenges which were organized by 14 Institutes of the Natural Sciences Faculty. This year, the LIMES Institute was represented by the Molecular Developmental Biology Unit with the topic: "What can we learn about human diseases from Drosophila and zebrafish?". Podcast in German

Scientific Quartet, research center caesar, 21.06.2015:

Based on the literary quartet there will be discussions on scientific topics several times a year with the Scientific Quartet: Prof. Dr. Michael Hoch, Rector of the University of Bonn, Prof. Dr. U. Benjamin Kaupp, caesar, Prof. Dr. Waldemar Kolanus, LIMES, and Prof. Dr. Joachim Schultze, LIMES.

SFB 704: The Immune System: Effective Weapon and Potential Threat, 09.12.2009

What exactly do scientists do when they explore "Molecular mechanisms and chemical modulation of local immune regulation"? Why do they deal with, for example, organ resident cells and the migration of immune cells? What impact do certain diets have on the immune system? This the Collaborative Research Center 704 discusses these points. Podcast in German

Life sciences and culture in Bonn, 19.09.2008

The University of Bonn, in cooperation with Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, invites outstanding undergraduate students to its novel study abroad programme, Life Sciences and Culture in Bonn.

The University of Bonn is among the top three research universities in Germany and a leader in biomedical research. The programme has been set up in close co-operation with the Collaborative Research Centre "Regulation and manipulation of information flow within dynamic protein and lipid environments" as well as the Life and Medical Sciences (LIMES) institute of the University. The programme combines laboratory research in biomedicine with the aquisition of intercultural skills in Bonn, a beautiful city with a profound international presence and a host city to the United Nations. Students actively participate in an intensive scientific project integrated into outgoing life science research activities at the university host lab.
