Each year EMBO YIPs organizes the famous PhD course for advanced PhD students from EMBO YIP labs. This year Philipp is one of those lucky students to participate. If you want to get updated on what´s happening there, please check out updates on Twitter.
This year´s COS Symposium “Senses and Sensitivity” was a big success. We had an excellent line-up of international, national and local speakers covering a wide range of scientific topics. Both, Victor and Marie presented Guse lab posters at the poster session and the Symposium concluded with a BBQ thanks to COS group leader Lazaro Centanin who knows his Argentinian meat.
How did it go? Super well!
Liz, Madeline and Annika attended the Hydra-Meeting 2015 in Tutzing organized by Thomas Holstein, Thomas Bosch und Uli Technau. It was a great meeting on very diverse topics around cnidarian biology and we met many old and new colleagues and collaborators. The conference was held in a beautiful setting right at the Starnberger See and the highlight was a boat trip with a Bavarian Buffet with gorgeous weather. Liz and Madeline presented a poster and Annika gave a talk summarizing our most recent findings on Aiptasia spawning and early development. Both posters were a big success and Liz, enthusiastically presenting her work as always, even won the third poster price! Congrats!
We are happy to announce the COS Symposium 2015! The biannual COS Symposium takes place on the 17th of June at the Bertalanffy Lecture Hall and will feature an international list of speakers that will “take us through time” by covering many aspects of evolutionary biology at different time scales using a diverse array of tools and emerging model systems as depicted on the poster. Free registration is open until the June 3rd.
3D-Images of Aiptasia anemones, taken with the Zeiss Z.1 light sheet microscopy (LSM) in Fiskebäckskil during the EMBO course Marine Animal Models in Evolution & Development, is showcased on the Zeiss webpage. Anemones are pretty cool, aren´t they?
The Guse lab introduced Aiptasia as a novel model system to study coral symbiosis at the very timely EMBO conference on: New Model Systems linking Ecology and Evolution held at the EMBL from May 1st to May 4th 2013. The talk about Aiptasia was part of the last session of the meeting entitled “Interactions and Ecosystems”. The meeting was very well attended with excellent invited speakers and gave a good overview on the status of the field. The food at EMBL was fantastic too.

We are going east! The Guse Lab presents the first poster at the 9th Okazaki Biology Conference in Japan.
