Mehmet Öztürk, PhD student from Molecular and Cellular Modeling (MCM) group recently participated in the 2016 LERU Doctoral Summer School held at Leiden University, Netherlands between 10-15th July 2016. The LERU Doctoral Summer School is an annual event organised by different LERU (The League of European Research Universities) members.

The aim of the LERU Doctoral Summer School is to provide doctoral candidates with unique professional and personal development opportunities beyond what they are generally exposed to in the course of their PhD training. By creating an exceptional and truly international, intercultural and interdisciplinary meeting of bright young minds, the Summer School creates a highly stimulating learning experience which is of long lasting value to the participants’ future careers.

38 doctoral students from different LERU universities gathered at the Leiden University for the 2016 LERU Doctoral Summer School. The theme of this year’s Summer School was “Data Stewardship for Scientific Discovery and Innovation” preparing participants for the future of complex, data-intensive, multi-stakeholder and multi-disciplinary scientific methods and collaborations.

HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
