Scholar Minds Talk Series: Harald Prüß (Berlin)

Learn about senior scholars' (career) stories of doubts, struggles, detours, failures, and successes. Register now.

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to invite you to this month's talk on Growing up in Science - Berlin. In every talk, we feature a scholar's story focusing on doubts, struggles, detours, failures, and successes throughout all career stages. The primary goal is not to offer classical career advice but to examine in some depth and in the context of a broader narrative the hidden human factors of working in academia. To know more about the rationale behind Growing up in Science talks, please have a look at this article.

Our speaker for this month is Prof. Dr. Harald Prüß (https://www.dzne.de/forschung/forschungsbereiche/grundlagenforschung/forschungsgruppen/pruess/curriculum-vitae/), Professor and Attending Physician in the Department of Neurology at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, group leader at the DZNE Berlin, and the head of the Experimental Neurology Department at Charité. His research focuses on the mechanisms of autoantibody-mediated impairment of neuronal function in the context of various types of autoimmune encephalitis. In his talk, he will share what he learned from frustrating setbacks during all career stages, how he has been struggling doing the splits between clinical and laboratory research, and why a good mood in the lab (in the meantime) means more to him than good science.

The event will take place online via Zoom on Wednesday, 22.03.2023, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
