logoWe train students for careers in biomedical research:  Welcome to Medical Life Sciences!

We all have been experiencing an unpredictable time with the pandemic of Covid-19 disrupting everyday lives since March 2020. Nevertheless we have been teaching students from all over the world. The summer semester 2020 went as scheduled, although in an unusual format, relying on video conferencing tools, audio-commented lecture slides, web presentations by students. The winter semester used the same digital formats, and it went more smoothly than at the start of the summer semester. It hasn't been perfect and everybody will be glad to return to in-class teaching and studying, but students and lecturers alike have shown with their initiative: studying can go on, even if you are not in class.
First-semester students from 12 nations just finished their summer semester online, but could sit exams in class with precautions in place. Lab practicals are currently going ahead, with students eager to have some non-virtual/digital hands-on training - at last! 

With vaccines in Germany and Kiel being available for all who want to be vaccinated, we stand a good chance of being able to conduct in-class courses from October onwards. To avoid the virus from spreading and mutating further getting vaccinated is the best way forward to be able to conduct in-the-flesh courses. Society as a whole will also only be safe if everybody joins in the effort to contain the virus. Please get vaccinated  if you can!
