MtL Discussions - Microfluidics 11 May 22 at 3 pm CEST
 

In our new virtual format, our MtL Fellows will highlight one method or technique used within our broad research network. You will get an overview of the method or technique itself, as well as learn how it is applied in the different MtL research areas. In a subsequent discussion round, different aspects, opportunities and limitations will be discussed! Your questions and contributions are welcome!  Join us for our first session on May 11th at 3 pm!

Presentations and Panel Discussion chaired by Katharina Landfester from MPI for Polymer Research (Mainz), joined by Sarah Köster from University of Göttingen and Joachim Rädler from LMU Munich.
