Last Tuesday, May 23, 2023, we welcomed a former PhD student of our spokesperson as guest speaker in our Research Training Group. Dr. Daniel Weckbecker received his PhD from RPTU in 2012 as a member of the RTG 845 in the Cell Biology group of Johannes Herrmann and is now working at MODAG GmbH Wendelsheim in Munich. In his great talk entitled “From Bench to Bedside: Drug Development at a Pharmaceutical Start-up Company” and during a casual round-table-meeting with our PhD students, Daniel provided interesting and valuable insights into his daily work routine in a pharmaceutical start-up company and his personal career development. Many thanks for that. We all enjoyed Daniel’s visit very much and wish him all the best for his further professional and private future.
