The Winter School: Cellular Signalling, organised by the University of Valencia for advanced students from the FORTHEM Alliance universities was a great success.

The winter school took place in a hybrid format. Most speakers were onsite. They were with students from the University of Valencia and covered topics such as signal recognition at and transduction across membranes, signalling within the cell and the initiation of a cellular response across various organisms.

During these two days, around one hundred students had the opportunity to attend (both onsite and online) four sessions with four lectures each, most of them were Master’s degree students.

The feedback from the students was very positive. They gave the event a score of 4.65 out of 5. Most students expressed the wish to attend this event again next year and if possible in a hybrid way again.

Both the students who attended the event and the organisers felt that this event has been a great success. These events help achieve one of the objectives at the heart of the  FORTHEM Alliance: fostering interactions and networking between researchers and academics.
