Recently, Madeline Bucher and Iliona Wolfowicz have joined the Guse Lab. Madeline has spend her summer on a boat in Iceland doing some whale research and will now start her PhD work on Aiptasia development. Iliona has come all the way from sunny Portugal to work on coral symbiosis in Heidelberg, which will hopefully be sunny again by next summer… Madeline and Iliona are both part of two prestigious PhD programs. Madeline has been selected into the Heidelberg “Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology” (HBIGS) and Iliona is a member of the Graduate Program in Basic and Applied Biology (GABBA) of the University of Porto. Congratulations & Welcome!
