As part of the nationwide Girls' and Boys' Day initiative 21 boys and girls visited the Zukunftstag 2016 at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics. The exciting program dealt with presentations about the institute and the daily work of a researcher in modern molecular biology. The children saw their first scientific poster presentation, in which they get to know the research topics of the institute in greater detail. Laboratory visits, microscopy exercises and DNA extractions completed the program.
