The ENLIGHT-TEN summer school 2018 builds on the experience of the C-COMEND courses on translational research and medicine development which in 2016 & 2017 delivered two highly valued courses. This is what the students said:

“It was great to get such a detailed overview of translational medicine from all those different perspectives. For me meeting a patient and hearing stories form patient’s families were the best part of the course.” – Lea-Isabell Schwarze 

“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
