In preparation for the first Junior Scientist Zoonoses Meeting of the Zoonoses Platform, ten young female scientists from different departments and institutions met in Berlin from 23rd to 24th February 2013.
Together with the scientific staff of the Riems office, the structure, topic and organization of the junior meeting under the title "Junior Scientist Zoonoses Meeting 2013" were discussed and determined. Leipzig was chosen as the venue.
Within the framework of the kick-off meeting for young scientists, a committee of young scientists was established, from whose ranks three young scientists' representatives were elected. These will present their results and proposals at the next advisory board meeting on 18 March 2013.
