Excellent trip to Cologne

310511-cologne

Just returned from 2 days in Cologne.

Invited over by Bent Brachvogel @Institute for Biochemistry and the Center for Molecular Medicine Cologne (CMMC) to give a seminar.

Thanks to Bent and Frank Zaucke I had a great time!

Had the opportunity to catch up with Manuel Koch, Gerhard Sengle and Mats Paulsson, as well as meeting and hearing interesting projects from several of the students and post-docs.

All in all lots of good scientific conversation and a few beers of course.

The return leg is to be held in Northumberland in Spring 2013
