AR took part on the career day at the MDC as EMBL alumni, participated on the panel discussion and on the EMBL alumni dinner in Berlin. There was also a chance to interact with students, former EMBL friends and colleagues, and to meet old friends like Marta Agostinho, the current coordinator of eulive.
Our new paper on Clock-genes and mitochondrial respiratory activity: Evidence of a reciprocal interplay is online at BBA- Bioenergetics. This work was the results of the follow up of a previous collaboration with the group of Gianluiggi Mazzoccoli from the Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, San Giovanni Rotondo and Nazzareno Capitanio from the University of Foggia, in Italy.
Rukeia El-Athman has joined the Relógio group to carry out her PhD project. She is financed by the e:Bio-BMBF. Welcome, Rukeia!
Initiated by entry-level scientists from MDC and Charité, BIH Young Science had its founding event in January 2014. The initiative’s goal is to intensify regular scientific exchange and discussion, especially on the level of early-career group leaders in interdisciplinary translational research. The members of BIH Young Science include scientists from both Charité and MDC at different stages of their research career.
NG joined the VIB conference on Applied Bioinformatics in Life Science and presented the work of the group with one poster. VIB – Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences, Leuven, Belgium.
NG was selected to participate on the EMBL-EBI course Introduction to Integrative Omics, Cambridge, UK.
MA was selected to participate on the Translational Bioinformatics Workshop, 2016 organized by the King’s College London and NHIR Biomedical Research Centre, London, UK.
We had a good time in the group during each “surprise” birthday celebration. We also had a chance to explore our birthday-songs-singing-abilities in Portuguese for Mónica, in German for Luise, in Chinese for Anuprabha, in Hindi for Angela and in English for Patrick.
Our new paper on Clock genes-dependent acetylation of complex I sets rhythmic activity of mitochondrial OxPhos is online at BBA-Molecular Cell Research. This work was the result of a nice and fruitful collaboration with the group of Gianluiggi Mazzoccoli from the Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, San Giovanni Rotondo and Nazzareno Capitanio from the University of Foggia, in Italy.
