CRC 1182 Young Investigator Award 2019

Once a year the CRC 1182 supports 2 junior researchers with each 15,000 €. The aim of the Young Investigator Award is to support on one hand the junior researchers of the CRC 1182 by providing them the possibility to develop their independent research project, on the other hand it is for the whole CRC 1182 the possibility to gain new scientific input and more connections within the research projects.

Shauni Doms, Phd student of the lab of Prof. Dr. John Baines at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, has been awarded for his proposed project “Characterization of Sirt4 and its relation to the gut microbiome and circadian rhythms in Drosophila”.

 

Jinru He, Phd student of the lab of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Thomas Bosch at the Zoological Institute at Kiel University, received the funding for his proposed project “Resolving Hydra-microbe interactions at single-cell resolution: a pilot scRNA-seq study for the CRC 1182 community
