Steph received a prestigious DOC fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences!
It is awesome that your ambitious project on light-activated ligand traps was selected for funding by the Academy, the Federal Ministry for Science, Research and Economy and their partnering institutions.
You can be very proud of this achievement! Keep up the good work! It’s great to have you on our team!
Stephanie was leading the project on light-sensing with cobalamin-binding domains and our paper appeared today in Angewandte Chemie Int. Ed.!
This work was a fantastic collaboration with Manuela and Martin from the CCRI – congrats everyone!

It is that time of the year again!
Together with Stefano de Renzis (EMBL) and Jared Toettcher (Princeton) we are again organizing the EMBO Practical Course “Non-Neuronal Optogenetics: Design to Application, Cell Signalling to Tissue Morphogenesis”!
Visit the course website at https://www.embl.de/training/events/2017/OPT17-01/index.html.
We have a truly amazing set of speakers/trainers and registration will soon open!
Join us September 3rd to 8th in Heidelberg!
Alvaro was awarded the 2017 AntalGenics – Spanish Biophysical Society prize, which recognizes the work of outstanding biophysicists under 33.
Check out Viviana’s of Axxam and Harald’s opinion on optogenetic methods in drug screening that just appeared online in Current Opinion in Biotechnology!
Michael will continue our long history of Masters students shared with the grozup of Michael Grusch lab from the Institute for Cancer Research of the Medical University of Vienna!
We welcome him and wish him all the best for his thesis project!
Unfortunately, it’s time to say goodbye to Inma, whose time with us ends this week. You were an enrichment for us as a group as well as for the whole institute. It’s hard to see you move on, but we wish you all the best for your future!
¡Muchas gracias por todo!
Dear Inma, thank you so much for everything you have done for the group in the past years. As you may have noticed, the group you joined and the group that now sees you go are very different. Much of our development and success has to be credited to your enthusiasm, work ethic, knowledge and skills. Me, my group and the whole DOTS team will be missing you very much. Harald
