Jason joined the group of Dan Fisher in Montpellier to study chromatin morphology in neutrophils. Thank you to the CiM graduate school programme and of course the Fisher lab for making this exchange possible!
Our paper on the immune response after heterologous vs. homologous vaccination has been published in "Allergy"! https://www.umg.eu/news-detail/news-detail/detail/news/corona-impfung-zweitimpfung-mit-biontech-steigert-immunantwort-effektiver-als-mit-astra/
Luise Erpenbeck has accepted a W3 professorship for "Translational and Experimental Immunodermatology" in the Department of Dermatology of Münster. Anne Schmitz and Jason Holsapple have started as new PhD students in the lab. Meike Steinert has joined the team as our lab technician.
Luise Erpenbeck has been awarded one of three Else Kröner Clinician Scientist professorships in Germany. I feel very honoured!
Elsa Neubert and Daniel Meyer were awarded the prize of the foundation council of the UMG for an outstanding publication! Both of these exceptional researchers have since decided to face new challenges - Elsa as a postdoc in Leiden, Daniel as a research attorney.
Thea Husar won the prestigious Kurt & Eva Hermann Fellowship of the Alfred Marchionini Foundation for her doctoral research project.
Antonia Gruhn received one of five research fellowships of the DSD (Deutsche Stiftung für Dermatologie) for her experimental thesis.
Luise Erpenbeck received the GSK award for basic research. It is very motivating to see that we are on the right track with our research!
Luise Erpenbeck received the EMBO speaker's award for the best oral presentation at the conference "Novel Conceps in Innate Immunity". What a spectacular conference, so many fascinating topics - highly recommended for anybody working in innate immunity.
After 3.5 years of hard work, but also after lots of fun together and of course after quite a few beautiful papers Elsa has very successfully defended her PhD thesis today! We are happy and proud to have Dr. Neubert in our group as a postdoc.
Elsa Neubert has been awarded the prestigious Egon Macher Award at the ADF 2019 for her publication "Chromatin swelling drives neutrophil extracellular trap release". What a (well-deserved!) honour!
