Jung Foundation offers a forum for renowned researchers: 3rd Jung Symposium with Türeci, Rose-John and Mrestani at the UKE and via live stream on 5 May 2023

Hamburg, 11/04/2023. What possibilities do mRNA agents open up for future cancer treatments? How can autoimmune diseases be combated with greater precision? And how do point mutations in the CACNA1A gene influence the onset of epilepsy and migraines? The 3rd Jung Symposium “Excellent medicine 2023” is the place to be for anyone who is intrigued by these questions. Here, the Jung Foundation for Science and Research will be unveiling the outstanding research findings of this year’s laureates. Attendees can look forward to talks by the doctor, immunologist and cancer researcher Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. mult. Özlem Türeci, the translational neuroscientist Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Rose-John and young researcher Dr. med. Achmed Mrestani. The 3rd Jung Symposium will be broadcast live via video stream from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on 5 May 2023 and can either be watched online or attended in person at the Ian K.
