Course info

The ENLIGHT-TEN summer school consists of an introductory e learning (~ 10 hours student investment time in March/April) followed by a 5 day face-to-face workshop. The course is intended for PhD students in the second half of their PhD and early postdocs who are involved in biomedical research. It provides participants with the knowledge, philosophy and tools needed in translational research and medicine development empowering them to make a difference in translational medicine. 


The fee of 300 Euro includes the 5 day course in Berlin, catering during the course, two dinners and the e-learning. 

The ENLIGHT-TEN summer school 2018 builds on the experience of the C-COMEND courses on translational research and medicine development which in 2016 & 2017 delivered two highly valued courses. This is what the students said:

"It was great to get such a detailed overview of translational medicine from all those different perspectives. For me meeting a patient and hearing stories form patient’s families were the best part of the course." – Lea-Isabell Schwarze

"If you have the opportunity to take part in this course – do it. It will fundamentally change your view on how your work as a research scientist can make a difference in the real world outside your lab." – Konstantin Kuhne

"Very interactive course with a non-traditional approach. The course reflects the reality of translational medicine: getting a lot of people with different backgrounds to work together as a team." – Miriam Ayuso

"My expectations to the course were very high, and they were fulfilled." – Sandra Heckers

"It was a difficult decision to leave the lab for 5 days but it absolutely worth it." – Kevin Ferreira
