In summer 2018, the Phospholipid Research Center invited all principle investigators and their PhD students or Postdocs in charge of funded projects to a big meet and greet. This so-called Researcher`s Day focused on talented young scientist, to give them the chance presenting and discussing their research topics and results in presence of experts. The purpose of the meeting was to bring the researchers together and offer a platform for networking and exchange of scientific ideas. The sixty participants were categorized in three discussion groups related to parenteral, oral and topical administration of phospholipids, respectively. Small, specialized groups should allow for in-depth discussions among scientist having the same main interests. These expert groups were guided by members of the Scientific Advisory Council or the management of the Phospholipid Research Center.
