17th Dutch German Joint Meeting of the Molecular Cardiology Working Groups
It is our great honor to host the 17th Dutch-German Joint Meeting of the Molecular Cardiology Working Groups in Göttingen from the 14th to the 16th of March 2019. The meeting will take place in the Alte Mensa of the University of Göttingen, which is located in the heart of the old city. The city of Göttingen, mentioned for the first time in 953AD as Gutingi, has been a city of science for more than 200 years. Famous scientists like Carl Friedrich Gauss carried out their research in Göttingen. Altogether 46 Nobel laureates framed collectively the Nobelpreiswunder of Göttingen. The Georg-August University with its 30,000 students, five Max-Planck-Institutes and other renowned research institutions with a large community of international scientists create a truly scholarly atmosphere.
Göttingen is located in the beautiful landscape environment of the German Fairy Tale Route. Its well-preserved historic old city is remarkable for its many half-timbered homes and other buildings, quite a few of them being older than 500 years. All of you who have already been to Göttingen may be happy to come again, and all of you who have not been here yet will surely keep it in your memories.
