10.04.2017 First BioChem Symposium 2017

Our group was part of the first BioChem-Symposium at the JGU Mainz, which was held on 10th April 2017. It was initiated by groups of the Institute of Molecular Physiology and the Institute of Pharmacy and Biochemistry. This was a great chance for PhD-students to present their work to other groups from the JGU and get new input for their research. From our group, Stefanie Pannwitt and Margareta Trefz presented their projects in a talk. We all enjoyed the nice atmosphere and the alumnus talk by Dr. Christoph Dockter from the CarlsbergReserach Laboratory. We are already looking forward to the next symposium in october, which will be organized by our group and the group of Prof. Ute Hellmich.

Five members of our cyano team went to the FIRST YOUNG INVESTIGATOR SYMPOSIUM on cyanobacteria, held in Rostock (Germany) from 5th to 8th October. Jennifer Heidrich and Adrien Thurotte were invited to give a talk about their work on IM30, the inner membrane associated protein of 30 kDa that is involved in thylakoid membrane biogenesis. Despite the cold weather, the five enjoyed the stay in Rostock, and luckily, they were also able to make a short excursion to the beautiful sea!
