Dr Richard Allen has join the lab last June 1st as a postdoctoral researcher. Richard will be working with our natural strain collection and potential antibiotic resistance patterns among these strains. Welcome, Richard!
We've recently welcomed Johanna Giger to the lab. Johanna will be conducting her MSc research with us, and will be focusing on the effects of siderophores produced by free-living bacteria on human pathogens. Best of luck, Johanna!
This August we welcomed a new member in our lab: Ingrid Mignot is our new Lab Manager and joins us after 6 years at ETH Zurich. Welcome Ingrid!
Over the last three months, we had the pleasure of hosting Jaime Gonzalez Gutierrez, a PhD Student in Prof. Jose Jimenez's lab (University of Surrey). With us, Jaime worked on P. aeruginosa's pyoverdine uptake in a host context.
On April 1st, we welcomed Désirée Schimtz to the lab. She is interested in microbial inter-species interactions in a host context. Here's to a successful project!
Vera Vollenweider has joined our lab this January to pursue her PhD. She will be working with our natural isolates collections, looking for novel siderophores and testing their feasibility as anti-microbial agents. Best of luck, Vera!
We'd like to welcome Lorenzo Alimonti to our Lab! Lorenzo is a Master's student from Italy (Roma Tre University) and has joined us to develop a part of his project, on the emergence of cheater phenotypes in different P. aeruginosa strains.
In July and August, we had to pleasure to host Miguel López, an undergraduate student from the University of Malaga, Spain.
Miguel took part in the BUSS (University of Zurich's Biology Undergraduate Summer School). During his stay, he worked with Jos Kramer and our collection of Pseudomonas natural isolates.
