Congratulations and goodbye Dr Andersen!

On 24 July, Line successfully defended her thesis. Congratulations to Line – our Dr Andersen deserved her PhD not only in P2Y signalling but also in cake baking! It was a journey with lots of up and downs, but Line mastered the rollercoaster of P2Y with impressive diligence.

This Friday was Line’s last day in the lab. She organised a fantastic cocktail party for everyone and received a little surprise from us! Dear Line, we’re proud of your achievement and thankful for your contribution to the lab, especially in taming our qPCR Commander. You and your cakes will always occupy a sweet spot in our hearts (and adipose tissue). We wish you all the best in your new position in Copenhagen!

TRR353: Death Decisions funded!

We are excited that our collaborative research center Transregio “Cell death decisions” (TRR353) has been approved for funding. TRR353 focuses on innovative and groundbreaking research related to the regulation of cell death decisions. Together with our colleagues at the University of Konstanz and the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, we will study how, why and when cells decide to die and how this can be exploited for therapeutic purposes. This funding will allow us to study the regulatory mechanisms of oxeiptosis, and the relationship of oxpeiptosis to other cell death pathways.

We are hiring PhD students for this project soon, so keep your eyes open!
