On the following pages we have assembled some information on different aspects of our recent research, teaching and services. Just follow the different links from the menu bar. Our research focus is on membrane dynamics and signalling during plant-microbe interactions. Here, we study the molecular mechanisms that enable host cells to keep strict control over…
We are seeking highly motivated undergraduate students to support some of our routine lab work as well as individual research projects. We expect an average work load of 8 hours per week. The positions are immediately available. Please contact Christiane Fischer-Iglesias for further inquiries.
We welcome Sebastian Schenk as a new member of our team! Sebastian started his work as a PostDoc in our lab in April where he will develop his own line of research on plant-pathogen interactions. Read more on his career here.
We will join the Engineering Nitrogen Symbiosis for Africa (ENSA) project which is currently mainly funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. ENSA aims to use biological nitrogen fixation to sustainably increase yields for small-holder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa. We are looking forward to officially join the ENSA team soon.
Collaborative work together with the lab of Cyril Zipfel (TSL Norwich) has just been published in eLife. Here, we show that functionally different receptors segregate into separate membrane nanodomains. Have a look at Buecherl et al., eLife 2017;10.7554/eLife.25114.
