After a postponement due to the pandemic, around 170 participants met last week for the 8th International IZKF Symposium “The Magic M’s in Modern Medicine” in Kloster Banz.
In addition to an attractive conference programme, there was also a poster exhibition with around 80 exhibitors. We would like to introduce the prize winners here. The Molecular Neurology Department should be pleased in particular. They represent three of the four prize winners. A poster prize of 250 euros was awarded to:
