The 2018 lectures were addressed at freshmen from the University of Strasbourg in the framework of the lecture series
Langues disciplinaires in Biology.
Approximately 600 bachelor students in Biology/Biochemistry took part in the lectures between September – December 2018. The 45-50 minute lectures were 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 was followed by a face-to-face discussion.

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…… !
