Group Retreat 2015

The group retreat 2015 took place in the end of September in the beautiful Black Forest. In a joint event bringing together the groups of Wolfgang Huber and Judith Zaugg, 22 scientists spent a fantastic time together exchanging their research approaches and results. Additionally, they enjoyed developing and discussing “Blue Sky” science projects in small groups, presented in a “back to basics” way using hand-drawn posters. The retreat was closed with a wonderful hiking tour on the third day.

Congratulations Alejandro

In October 15, 2015, Alejandro Reyes successfully defended his PhD thesis titled “Analysis of transcript isoform regulation using high-troughput RNA sequencing” with the distinction “summa cum laude”.

Congratulations Sascha!

Sascha Dietrich’s project proposal within the health research program “Junior Group in Systems Medicine” of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) was positively evaluated. This multidisciplinary project, which is intended to have direct clinical impact on patient care in blood cancers, is titled “An integrated systems medicine approach to personalized and targeted therapy in leukaemia and lymphoma”.
