First LOCOTACT-RDM Workshop in Medical and Biomedical Sciences
This week, Stephanie Rehwald and Sophia Leimer (INF project, Research Data Services University Library Duisburg-Essen) as well as Birte Lindstädt and Justine Vandendorpe (ZB MED, Information Centre for Life Sciences) gave insights how good research data management can make the difference. In this interactive workshop, they shared practical tips and tricks how to manage and document data throughout data collection, analysis, publication, long-term storage, archiving, and how to prepare data for reuse.
LOCOTACT Retreat 2022 - THANK YOU
We are delighted that 2022 offered the opportunity for all LOCOTACT members to finally meet in person for our 2nd annual LOCOTACT retreat and we wish to thank each and every one cordially again for the participation.
After all the covid-related limitations, it was highly motivating and refreshing to see so many LOCOTACT members in Münster.
Especially the scientific work conducted and presented by our younger LOCOTACT members left a lasting impression.
We want to congratulate you for the achievements and strongly encourage you to proceed with such enthusiasm in your Master, PhD, MD theses and PostDoc projects.
The poster sessions have been on a remarkable high scientific level and four outstanding presentations could be awarded with poster prizes.
LOCOTACT is truly evolving in a scientific and personal manner. With enthusiasm we are looking forward for upcoming excellent scientific publications resulting from collaborations across the projects and research sites.
LOCOTACT projects will substantially contribute to the knowledge of rare and common diseases and we aim to apply novel technologies to push the boundaries.
We are convinced to be on the right track with our LOCOTACT projects and strongly encourage you to carry on full speed and with the positive spirit we experienced during the retreat.

LOCOTACT Workshop Series - Equal Opportunities in Research
Dagmar Führer PI in CANcer TARgeting (CANTAR) research network
The state government of North Rhine-Westphalia is funding the CANcer TARgeting (CANTAR) research network with 19.4 million euros.
The overall concept of CANTAR builds on the strategic bundling of highly complementary expertise in North Rhine-Westphalia. The aim of the project is to develop new chemical substances to specifically intercept oncogenic pathways and immune escape mechanisms in cancer.
The CANTAR research at UKE is based at the WTZ and hedaed by University Professor Dr. Christian Reinhardt, Director of the Clinic for Hematology and Stem Cell Transplantation at University Hospital Essen. LOCOTACT spokesperson Dagmar Führer is a PI in the CANTAR research network: "CANTAR aims to bridge the gap gap between basic research and translational clinical cancer research and we are proud to contribute to this relevant goal."
