Welcome Hanna, Lotte and Dhirend!
Now it’s getting crowded! Mid of January Hanna Lee, Lotte Zandbergen and Dhirendra Singh joined the group. Hanna is a dietitian and a self-proclaimed food connoisseur from UC Davis/USA and will stay in the group as a guest researcher for 10 weeks. Lotte is studying Cardiovascular Research at the VU University in the Netherlands and will perform her Master thesis in the lab.
Dhirend is finishing his PhD on fungal infections at the University of Szeged in Hungary and now joins the lab as a post-doctoral fellow. Here in Umeå all three will focus on the effect of diet and gut microbiota on mucus function. Read more about the “new arrivals” in our Team section
Mid of October Fabiola Puertolas-Balint joined the lab as a project assistant. She will work on intestinal antimicrobial peptides and their interaction with the gut microbiota.
After finishing her Bachelor in Pharmaceutical sciences in Puebla/Mexico Fabiola did her International Master in Innovative Medince in Groningen/Netherlands and Uppsala/Sweden and now already started her first experiments here in Umeå.
We have been featured in a nice portrait in Västerbottens-Kuriren, Norrlands biggest daily news paper. Really great to see that our research is interesting for the community up here.
If you are interested, you can find the article here (in Swedish).
The setting-up of the lab is still continuing, but we are on a good way. Top candidates for the positions mentioned below have been invited and partly selected, so we are not actively recruiting post-docs and PhD students at the moment. But of course, it might be possible to join the lab with own independent funding.
From spring 2019, the Schroeder lab will be based at The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) within the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, located at Umeå University at the beautiful east coast of Sweden. Our focus will be on the interaction between diet, gut microbiota and the intestinal immune system.
We are currently recruiting postdocs, one PhD student and motivated students. Please check our recruitment ads for details!
