The fee of 450 Euro includes the 5 day course in Barcelona, catering during the course, one dinners and the e-learning. For more information see or attached fact sheet. Review of application documents will be on a first come, first serve basis.

The TMex winter school 2019 builds on the experience of the C-COMEND and ENLIGHT-TEN courses on translational research and medicine development which in 2016, 2017 & 2018 delivered three highly valued courses. This what the students say:

  • 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)
