Tag der Klinischen Forschung 2021

Am 28. Januar 2021 fand der diesjährige Auftakt des Departements Klinische Forschung (DKF) in das neue Forschungsjahr statt - bedingt durch die derzeitige Pandemielage als Webinar.

Die inspirierenden Keynote Lecture wurde von Prof. Ulrich Dirnagl, Direktor des QUEST Center for Transforming Biomedical Research am Berlin Institute of Health und Direktor der Abteilung für Experimentelle Neurologie an der Charité, zum Thema "Improving the value of biomedical research: Lessons learned from COVID-19" präsentiert und von von 175 Zuhörenden verfolgt.

Danach zeigten die Nachwuchsforschenden am DKF einen beeindruckenden Querschnitt durch die klinische Forschungslandschaft. Die besten Präsentationen wurde mittels Publikumsvoting ermittelt.
