Mate at the CSHL Eukaryotic Gene Expression Course

 

Mate took part at the Gene Expression course in Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory from July 22-August 10. During the 3 weeks he had a lot of fun doing 17 different experiments and interacting with almost 20 top scientists in the transcription field. Having a beer with mates and instructors after long hours at the bench and in the classroom, sailing in the harbor and having a huge beach picnic with the whole group made for unforgettable moments and many new friends. The only bitter part in the 3 weeks was loosing in the famous plate race 😉

Best PostDoc Speaker & Future PhD Position

Lots to celebrate! Vania has found a new PhD position at the CRTD in Dresden, which she will start in October. Good luck on the way! Krishnendu was voted for as best oral PostDoc presenter at the MPI-CBG PostDoc retreat. Cake + Champagne, and the weather played along 🙂

Hint for Vania's cake: it relates to her new position in neural development...
