Research Seminars

Research Seminars: Current Topics in Autism Research

This is our colloquium for final years (BSc & MSc) and PhD students, staff members as well as students in our research-orientated small group courses. Apart from discussing research done within the department in Jena, this colloquium regularly features some “highlights” – talks by eminent scientists from other universities or institutions to present the current progress of their research.

Time: Friday, 9.00 – 12.00 (s.t.) or to be announced
