Welcome dear first-year students! We are happy about all the new faces at our beautiful campus Westerberg! On Tuesday during the introduction week, our dean Prof. Michael Hensel and our fantastic student council warmly welcomed all new students. After a first official introduction session by our dean, the student council took over and after a short refreshment in the foyer, there was a crash course on general topics of a biology study. What does my study schedule look like? Who should I contact if I have questions? How does the module election actually function? And how do the exams work? The students of the student council had answers to all these questions. A short tour of the campus was also given, so that our first-year students will quickly find their way around. It's great to have you here!

The new textbook "Metazoa - Morphologie und Evolution der vielzelligen Tiere" by Prof. Achim Paululat and apl. Prof. Günter Purschke helps students in zoological dissection courses to recognize important anatomical structures. What distinguishes this manual from other textbooks in practical use? Master student Caici Neerincx contributed to the drafting of this manual and demonstrates it to you in its first major practical application.

Taster lectures on a wide variety of biology topics, games and experiments at hands-on stations, and tours of the CellNanOs research building! Just like last year, pupils had a lot of fun at our Night of Biology. Microscoping, loading a protein gel, examining fruit flies, and marveling at the university's most expensive microscope from below - there was all this and much more to experience during Biology Night!

Excursion to the Gülper Lake and the Havelland Luch

Once again this year, Osnabrück biology students explored the wildlife at 'Gülper See' (Gülpe Lake). The starting point for all daily observation tours was the Ecological Station of the University of Potsdam in Gülpe.

Spiny mice possess an extraordinary ability for mammals: they can repair injured tissue without forming scars. A joint study by researchers led by Prof. Kerstin Bartscherer (AG Animal Physiology) and Prof. Ashley Seifert (University of Kentucky) provides new insights into the molecular basis of this phenomenon - which could one day prove valuable for the treatment of human diseases.

Masters symposium

Scientific research is one thing, showing the research results to a larger audience in an interesting and understandable way is another. In the master symposium, our master students practice designing a scientific poster and presenting it in an internal poster session. How do I design such a poster and what is important in the talk? And which of our master students has created the best poster?
