Thesis Proposal Day

At the Thesis Proposal Day, IMPRS students will report which research they did during their rotations and introduce their project for the remainder of their doctoral studies, as well as motivate their choice of lab. The Thesis Proposal Day is open to everyone. No pre-registration is required.

This year's Thesis Proposal Day for the eighth-generation of IMPRS students will be organised on Monday April 16 from 10.15 to 17.15 hours at the Lecture hall of the MPI for Brain Research. Please find the schedule below (rotation labs between brackets).
