TWS Symposium on Nov 13th 2020 in Baden Baden

Due to the current COVID19-situation, we have decided to organise our 19th symposium on November 13, 2020, virtually. We have invited leading HSP scientists from all over the world to discuss and share the newest aspects of the HSP research. The symposium will be guided by Prof. Stephan Klebe and Prof. Christel Depienne (both UK Essen).

You can follow the symposium via webstream here on our website, starting at 8.50 am in the morning.
