Each year IMB hosts a Lecture Series giving an "Introduction to Epigenetics". The lectures are primarily aimed at undergraduate and graduate students in Mainz, but are open to anyone who may be interested and wishes to attend.

Lectures will take place at IMB during the Winter Semester. They will be given by representatives from IMB, Johannes Gutenberg University and the University Medical Center.

The full schedule of the 2016/17 Lecture Series can be found below.

Lectures are held on Tuesdays, 8:15-9:45 am, IMB 2nd Floor Seminar Room (2.021/2.022)
