Celebrating 1 year at the RWTH Aachen!

Celebrating 1 year at the RWTH Aachen!

It's hard to believe that an entire year has flown by since the start of our lab at RWTH University nestled in the charming city of Aachen. Our journey began with just a handful of individuals, and Alaa standing steadfast from the start, playing a pivotal role in setting the wheels in motion (Cheers, Alaa!). Fast forward to today, and our team has grown a lot, yet we are still looking for for talent, with an open position eagerly waiting to be filled.

Happy to be working with this bunch!

We are moving to the RWTH Aachen!!!

Marco has been appointed chair of the Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology and our group is moving to the RWTH University in the lovely city of Aachen! It has been four great years at the University of Freiburg and we are sad to leave friends and colleagues. However, we are also looking forward to new exciting times at the RWTH!

We have various new openings, so keep an eye on new job postings.

International Conference on Plant Protesostasis #PPStasis2022

International Conference on Plant Protesostasis #PPStasis2022

The “International Conference on Plant Proteostasis” organized by Vicente Rubio (CNB, CSIC, Madrid), together with Frederica Theodoulou, Beatriz Orosa and Marco Trujillo, was again a huge success. We had a fantastic line up of people and brilliant talks. Vivid discussions took place after every talk and during the poster sessions, reflecting a phenomenal engagement of participants.  Our Carla Brillada @carla840126 also presented a story from the lab with data from her and alumni Bushra Saeed @Uknow_Wh0. In addition, Madrid is a fantastic venue making the meeting very enjoyable.

The community will meet again for the next Conference in beautiful Vienna!
