IRTG 2172: PRoTECT: Plant Responses To Eliminate Critical Threats
The International Research Training Group 2172 funded by the DFG is a collaborative program between research groups of the Georg-August-University Goettingen (UGOE) and research groups of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver.
The IRTG is managed by 8 research groups of the Georg August University Goettingen in close cooperation with 7 research groups of the Department of Botany and the Michael-Smith Laboratories of the UBC in Vancouver. A joint PhD training program and close cooperation within the projects provide international experience and an international network to the doctoral researchers who also spend part of their PhD thesis in Canada.
June 17th and 18th the IRTG held its third retreat. The members from Göttingen and Vancouver met at Burg Ludwigstein for their annual thesis committee meetings. Prof. Xin Li, the program's speaker in Vancouver, gave an interesting lecture on her research.
