Science Communication and Ethical Aspects of Today’s Research

For young scientists in infection biology, it is fundamental to gain ideas and inspiration from other research fields. To promote interdisciplinary networking, a symposium titled “Infection Biology for the 21st Century: Today’s Giants Meet Tomorrow’s Leaders” will be held in Berlin in June 2018, bringing together excellent top-level researchers with postdocs and doctoral candidates from all over the world. The highlight of the second conference day will be the Science & Society Session “Science Communication and Ethical Aspects of Today’s Research.” Supported by the Schering Stiftung, the session will discuss the public perception of science in general and the public image of scientists in particular.

The Science & Society Session will be accompanied by expert lectures and poster sessions discussing research results and research fields, science within historical, moral-ethical, economic, and political contexts, as well as the topic of science communication. The various formats are designed to promote the interaction of young researchers with senior scientists, thus reducing hierarchies and anxieties.

Prof. Dirk Lanzerath, Executive Manager, German Reference Center for Ethics in the Life Sciences (DRZE)
Prof. Bence Nanay, Professor of Philosophy, University of Antwerp, Belgium
Prof. Dietram Scheufele, Professor of Science Communication, University of Madison-Wisconsin, USA
