Claudia defended her thesis

Claudia successfully defended her thesis at the LMU in Munich! In her work, she made major contributions for our understanding of the membrane binding mechanism of remorins and studied symbiotic dualism in legumes. Congratulations Claudia! We wish you good luck for your future.

We have a new logo

We spent quite some time on thinking about a group logo that Bea and Paolo now created. We leave a lot room for imaginations, what this is all about. But there is more in it than you may initially think. Hope you will recognize it wherever you see it.

Casandra joined the team

After Casandra studied and worked at the McGill University in Canada, the Universidad Las Américas Puebla in Mexico and the University of Gießen in Germany, she now strengthens our team in the field of plant innate immunity. Looking forward to have you around.
