Why pneumology has to come a-lung quickly! Breathtaking presentations of LHI/CPC scientists at Pint of Science Munich


What size is the surface of the human lung? Why does it take so long to get from basic research to a drug that fights incurable lung diseases? These and many other questions were answered at the Pint of Science Event at the “Gans am Wasser” in Munich Westpark. With great enthusiasm, many pictures, videos and gadgets like the Alveoli-style “squishy balls” the three LHI/CPC students (and members of the EHLRS) made science tangible, understandable.



Many Thanks go to:

With many excited spectators, an impressive location at the open-air café “Gans am Wasser”, Pint of Science was a joyful and intense experience for all participants. This definitely has to be repeated!
