Congratulations to Amaya Vilches Barro who successfully defended her PhD today. Read More
Busy week in Turku (Finland) for the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research. Alexis co-organised with Yvonne Stahl a workshop on functional imaging in plants with great talks from Joop Vermeer (Zürich), Guido Grossmann (Heidelberg), Benedicte Desvoye (Madrid) and Léa Rambaud-Lavigne (Lyon).
Amaya’s work on cytsokeleton dynamics during lateral root initiation was awarded the second poster prize! Congratulations!
The lab traveled “en force” to Montpellier last week to attend the always exciting lateral root workshop. Amaya, Béatrice, Marion, Michael & Alexis joined ~60 other lateral root fanatics to discuss their latest results. In addition to great science and discussion, the weather and food were as one can expect from Montpellier: brilliant!
The children observed flies, plants and anemones. They mixed and unmixed colors and even extracted DNA from tomato!
Their visit was a real success. The children, the teachers and the COS members were thrilled by the event.
This event built upon a teaching concept developed by Yohanns Bellaïche (Institut Curie, France) and curated by the Cercle FSER.
A huge thanks goes to: Marion Louveaux, Paola Ruiz Duarte, Emmanuel Gaquerel, Zheni Li, Olympe Grandcolas, Andrea Leibfried, Julie Carnesecchi, Katrin Domsch, Victor Jones, Marie Jacobovitz, Diana Bryant and Gideon Bergheim for making this event possible.
