AAAS Local: Munich

, ,

This networking event is for AAAS members, scientists, and science enthusiasts wanting to make personal and professional connections in their local community both inside and outside their own disciplines. Over the course of this year AAAS will be launching a series of these local events in cities around the world.

Our special guest speakers for this event are AAAS Fellow Peter Wilderer, an environmental engineer (Emeritus) at Technische Universität München,and AAAS member Ombeline Rossier, a microbiologist at the Max von Pettenkofer-Institute, University of Munich. Wilderer conducted fundamental studies on the ecology of heterogeneously composed microbial communities in biological wastewater treatment systems, and on structure and function of biofilms. In the 1990s he focused his interest on decentralized sanitation and reuse, and on the development of the related technical and management concepts. Rossier's research focuses on post-transcriptional mechanisms controlling the production of protein secretion systems and adhesins involved in pathogenicity.

They will open the evening event, giving short presentations on the latest research in their fields. A catered reception will follow the presentations.

Join us for a night of stimulating science and great conversation.
