From October 16-18, 2023, our second STRESSistance Symposium took place at the impressing Ebernburg in Bad-Münster am Stein. It was organized as Networking Meeting together with the Cologne Research Training Group reloc (RTG 2550). Our program included a scientific speed dating, various lecture and poster sessions, as well as sufficient time for scientific and informal exchange between the PhD students and PIs of both Research Training Groups. We are very pleased with the successful outcome and thank all participants for their exciting and engaging contributions.
