The 1st “Eurolife Lecture Series” are the initiative of the the Eurolife Education Alliance and are organised by the University of Strasbourg in the frame of the lecture series
Langues disciplinaires in Biology.
This new initiative is addressed at freshmen from the University of Strasbourg. 600 bachelor students in Biology/Biochemistry are expected to take part in the lectures between September – December 2018. The 45-50 minute lectures are offered by academics, who are widely known for their work in the field – please see the Program for the complete list of lecturers and lectures.
Each lecture is followed by a face-to-face discussion. The lectures facilitate and encourage educational and scientific interactions with the goal to contribute towards developing new pan-European standards of excellence in life science education and to increase institutional collaboration.

From Eurolife Lecture Series to Eurolife Student Mobility Program. “It’s a great opportunity for me as an undergraduate student, and I am really grateful to Eurolife, for allowing me to discover state of the art science in Molecular Biology and to feel as a european citizen”
By Hugo Laporte, participant to the Eurolife Lecture Series, student of Molecular- & Cellular Biology from the University of Strasbourg
My name is Hugo Laporte and I am studying Molecular- & Cellular Biology (Bachelor 2nd year) at the University of Strasbourg in the frame of a Franco-German double degree. During my previous semester (3rd), I had the chance to attend the “Eurolife lecture series” (Langues disciplinaires in Biology). Professors coming from the Eurolife partners the Leiden Medical University (LMUC), the Medical University of Innsbruck (MUI) & the Trinity College Dublin (TCD) traveled to Strasbourg to give us lectures about a topic related to their current research. This is how I met Prof. Ross Mc Manus (Trinity College Dublin), who introduced us into genomics related diseases. I also had the opportunity to discuss with him after his lecture, and I asked him to do a summer internship in his department, because I was fascinated by his subject. He accepted my request and we agreed on a 2 month internship at Trinity College Dublin. It’s a great opportunity for me as an undergraduate student, and I am really grateful to Eurolife, for allowing me to discover state of the art science in Molecular Biology and to feel as a european citizen discovering a new country. Eurolife will support my mobility with 500€ which allows me to partly cover accomodation and transportation.
To be continued after the internship…… !
