Today Emre started his position as post-doctoral fellow in our group. While he still needs to formally finalize his studies in Halle, he is now free to work on the topics of our research.
Welcome Emre and good luck!
Today Song (Xiaosong) defended her thesis, and as with everything, she did this in style and very well.
Due to the Corona pandemic sadly she and the committee members could not be therein person, but nonetheless it was a very special and solemn moment for all of us, and for Song in particular.
Those who missed it, there is still a chance to have a look at it, as the ceremony was recorded and can now be found on Youtube:
All the best to you Song, we will certainly miss you but look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Today Jiachang, or as we like to say “Jia”, has arrived as a new PhD student in the lab.
You are very welcome Jia, and we wish you all the best for the coming four years!
Today we heard that a manuscript written by Hessel on a topic where modelling and experimental structures are compared was accepted for publication.
Congrats Hessel !
Today we received a message from Front. Cell. Infect. Microbiol. that our manuscript on the analysis of COVID-19 patient samples was accepted for publication.
It is again a nice work that would not have been established without the help of our colleagues from Spain and Sweden, thanks all for your efforts and most of all congrats to Joram and Femke.
Today we received confirmation that Joram’s first major manuscript, on the involvement of NETs in COVID-19 was accepted for publication in Scientific Reports. Many thanks to our collaborators from Sweden and Spain! It was quite a difficult ride to have the manuscript, at this times of the pandemic, published. Nonetheless, it’s there now!
Today Bogac defended his PhD at the UvA. Allthough only few people were allowed at the ceremony, due to the Corona restrictions, this did not prevent him from delivering an excellent and expert performance. Well done Bogac!
Today Johana defended her thesis and did so extremely well! We are very proud of her, given the difficult circumstances (Corona, online-defense, no family or friends around…). We will most certainly ceise the opportunity to celebrate this major event when this will be possible again.
Today 6 new interns started their internship:
Jonathan, Famke, Diego and Wouter will do a bachelor internship, while Lisa will start her Master internship.
Elisa, working with Ingrid will join our meetings as well as her topic will be crossing the border between peptide-synthesis and structure-bioinformatics.
Welcome and learn as much as you can, despite the measures we have to adhere to due to the Corona pandemic!
Today the paper that Song and Tom wrote on the structure-function relationships of PAD4 was accepted for publication in JTH, congratulations both! Nice piece of work!
