The symposium and the reception will take place in the ruin of Charité’s former Rudolf Virchow Lecture Hall at the Berlin Museum of Medical History.

The ruin with its historic charm presents a unique event location that has made for an unforgettable experience for guests from all over the world. The lecture hall of the pathological museum was destroyed toward the end of World War II by bombings. After the war, the building was barely refitted and almost forgotten. Since the middle of the 1990s the “preserved” ruin has been used for formal events, social get-togethers and scientific exchange.
