05-07 November 2016 - Start-Up Conference LEUCOREA Wittenberg


The members of the recently established DFG Research Training Group 2155 (ProMoAge) gathered for their first meeting in the historical city of Wittenberg during the weekend from 5th to 7th November 2016. What better location for this kick-off-meeting could be chosen than the „Leucorea“, which was founded over 500 years ago and has later merged with the Friedrichs University of Halle to form the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. 

The aim of the meeting was to introduce each specific subproject of ProMoAge and the working group behind it. 14 innovative projects dealing with posttranslational protein modifications and their role in ageing were shortly presented and discussed with enthusiasm by PhD and MD students,    postdocs and group leaders. Guest lectures about good scientific practice, ProMoAge-related epidemiological cohort studies and newest insights in proteasome modulation during ageing complemented the diverse programme.

One should not stay in Wittenberg without visiting the historical old town and the castle church, and thus, a guided tour through the city taught us much about its past, which is inseparably connected to the life and work of Martin Luther. Other activities like a dance evening and a movie night contributed to getting to know each other and completed this successful meeting.
