Young Investigator Award 2022 – Christoph Giez & Jan Taubenheim & Tyler Carrier
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.
This year, due to the high number of good quality applications we awarded the Young Investigator Award to three junior researchers.
Christoph Giez is a doctoral researcher of the lab of Prof. Dr. Thomas Bosch at the Zoological Institute at Kiel University. He has been awarded the Young Investigator Award 2022 for his proposed project “Amino acids a currency of Host-Microbe interactions”.
Dr. Jan Taubenheim is a Postdoctoral researcher at the lab of Prof. Dr. Christoph Kaleta at the Institute for Experimental Medicine, UKSH and Kiel University. He has been awarded the Young Investigator Award 2022 for his proposed project “Analyzing the metabolic interaction potential of host associated bacterial communities”.
Dr Tyler Carrier is a postdoctoral researcher at the lab of Prof. Dr. Ute Hentschel at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research. He is also an associated member of the CRC 1182. He has been awarded the Young Investigator Award 2022 for his proposed project “Using spatial transcriptomics to explore how an obligate symbiont primes host development”
