IMESHA'S LOGO DESIGN FOR THE VAAM SENSING & REGULATION SECTION WINS 3TH PRIZE
In their quest for a new logo for the study section sensing & regulation, the VAAM started a design contest. Imesha's design made it to third place. Congratulations Imesha and well done designing such a pretty logo!
OUR CITIZEN SCIENCE PROJECT MADE IT TO THE SECOND ROUND IN THE HOHCHSCHULWETTBEBERB
Our teams proposal for a project involving citizen scientists from across Germany to track down new Alphaproteobacteria with exciting capabilities has made it to the second round of the application process. We are doing our best to get the funding secured and would be very thrilled to get to start this project early next year. Stay tuned.
FUNDING FROM THE IMPULSE PROGRAM
We received funds from the FSU Jena to support building out molecular biology work in our lab. Many thanks for the support!
MICROFLUIDICS SET-UP IS ARRIVING
After a visit to the lab of Alexander Grünberger (Bielefeld) we have been establishing a microfluidics pipe-line, which allows us to study bacteria over prolonged times in changing environments. The first instruments have stared to arrive to the lab and we are planning to have the whole set-up up and running in spring 2022.
NEW PAPER ON MEDIAL ELONGATION IN CAULOBACTER
Our paper shining a bit of new light on medial elongation in Caulobacter got accepted in Frontiers in Microbiology. This growth phase that prepares the cells for cell division, doesn't need a lot, but it does need FtsZ.
MANUSCRIPT BY CARMEN & MURIEL IN DEV CELL
Carmen and Muriel wrote a Previews manuscript discussing the recent paper of Mathilde Guzzo et al. from the lab of Mike Laub on an intriguing new link between chromosome segregation and CtrA activation via ChpT localization in Caulobacter.
TOM RECEIVES DEUTSCHLANDSTIPENDIUM AND HONOURS PROLONGATION
Toms application for the prestiguous Deutschlandstipendium was granted. In addition, the Honours Programme was convinced by the results from his first year and plans for the next to study microbial fishing rods. Double congratulations Tom, we are proud to have such a successful research talent in our team.
CARMENS APPLICATION TO THE HONOURS PROGRAMME HAS BEEN GRANTED
Carmens project on the cell biology of environmental isolates under changing conditions has been selected as one of this years Honours projects. Congratulations Carmen, we are thrilled to have you on board for the next year!
VAN TEESELING LAB JOINS THE SFB CHEMBIOSYS
Our project to study bacterial cell biology in complex biosystems received support from the SFB1127 ChemBioSys via flexible network funds. We are looking forward to fruitful colaborations within the consortium.
VAN TEESELING LAB STARTS AT THE FSU JENA
The van Teeseling lab opens its doors at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. We are looking forward to lots of cool science in a supportive environment full of microbiology.
