DG-GT Pre-Congress Meeting

DG-GT was actively involved in shaping this year's ESGCT Annual Congress, which this year took place virtually from 19-22 October. As part of this, we organised a specific "German Day" session aimed at our members. We put together an interesting programme of "German" abstracts, and also offered our young scientists more opportunities to present their work. View the programme and session recordings below.
