Hot Topics in Bionanoscience ('Meet-the-speaker')

Course description: Speakers from all over the world are invited to present pedagogical introductions to their field with an emphasis on basic concepts. Apart from an introductory lecture, the participants of this course will have an additional discussion with the invited speaker. During that extra hour, they will discuss a recent paper and the holy grails of the field.

The first hour is a lecture and open for everyone to attend (in this case this BN seminar at 12:30-13:45h, title tba). The second hour is reserved as a discussion hour with the lecturer for the registered class of PhD students and postdocs.
