On October 10, 2023, our CRC 1436 invited all members to the 3rd General Assembly. The focus of this year’s meeting was the support of young scientists within the CRC and the 2nd funding period proposal.
After a short welcome, this year’s Outstanding Women in Neuroscience (OWN)-Award was presented to Erika Atucha. Prof. Dr. Denise Manahan-Vaughan (Ruhr University Bochum) was the patron of the award in 2023. Afterwards, our young scientists Niklas Vockert, Gabriel Ziegler and Oliver Barnstedt presented their research, thus preparing the transition to the strategic part of the event. This discussion focused on the future direction of the Collaborative Research Center in the second application phase.
