The lecture Series "Führende Köpfe in der IT - Wissenschaftlerinnen im Dialog" is a Lecture Series that particularly (but not only) targets female students and PhD students. The series wants to raise awareness of female scientists working in Data Science in general and in Life Science Informatics in particular. The lecturers in this series are seen role models for female students and PhD students and are -hopefully- going to inspire young female students to purse a career in this field.

Male students and PhD students as well as male researchers are very welcome to join the lectures below too!
