On July 18th 2017, 25 curious pupils visited the Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden (PLID) and the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) to hear about the research activities of both institutes in the field of diabetes. They were introduced to diabetes research at the PLID/CRTD, to the job profiles Predoc, Postdoc and Technician as well as heard about the recently started Freder1k study. The event concluded with very valuable insights in the life of a recently diagnosed type 1 diabetes patient.
The general goal of the annual TUD Summer University is the support of pupils in their career and/or study choice. Within this one-week course, they will learn about various research facilities and researchers working at TU Dresden.
