Corona Safety

In Mainz – home of the first Corona vaccine – we are committed to your safety in many ways. The meeting venue is a spatious lecture hall that will permit us to impose distance measures, if necessary. The hall is well ventilated. If the situation requires, daily COVID testing will be offered to all attendees. Treatment is good, prevention is better. Feel safe in Mainz.


Covers latest developments and breakthroughs in the science of stress resilience, both in animal models and in human studies. Since 2015, the symposium is the most important gathering of the international research community and has shaped the field and initiated many important debates. Examples?
