Welcome to the official site of the 6 th Heidelberg Forum for Young Life Scientists!

The brain is an enigma that has puzzled scientists throughout history. The complexity of the nervous system exists at all scales, from molecules building up a neuron, to a society of living organisms exhibiting a certain behaviour. Let us pause to reflect on this enigma right from a pixel to the big picture.
The Heidelberg Forum for Young Life Scientists (HFYLS) 2019 aims to explore the nervous system from both a reductionist and a holistic point of view, zooming out from molecules to populations, and bridge the gap between basic, curiosity-driven science and cutting-edge translational and clinical research. Join us in the beautiful university town of Heidelberg for two exciting days of discussing science with leading experts of academia and industry, and your peers!
