The DFG funds our joined international graduate school with ANU Canberra “Crossing Boundaries: Molecular Interactions in Malaria”. Interested in doing a PhD in infection biology? Spending some time in Canberra and Berlin? Graduating with dual affiliation? Stay tuned – more details on our PhD selection to follow soon.
Ella is joining us from
France for 3 months! Have a great summer in Berlin, Ella!
11.000 marched for Science in Berlin. Thank you all. Science matters!
Simone is invited by the Simons Foundation to talk about ‘Biological Active Matter: Nongeneric Problems, Nongeneric Methods’ in the Flatiron building in New York!
Lab outing! Madhouse live escape game - we got out in only 56 minutes and 39 seconds! Dinner was well deserved!
Helena Jambor teaching us about science data visualization. Thanks Helena!
Happy 15th Birthday MPI CBG! Fantastic symposium and fun Hyman lab reunion!
Tobias is a joint master student with the Ewers lab!
Sebastian, Will & Simone spent a few days in the Görlich lab at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry! Was great fun, especially meeting newborn Alpaca boy ‘Max’. Same hairdresser, Will?
Simone is giving a talk at the EMBO workshop ‘Cell Size Regulation’. Only a few weeks after leaving Woods Hole, Wallace, Thomas & Simone are reunited in one session! Thanks Britta for organizing a great meeting.
Moving to The Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole for the summer. From June - August our address is
Rowe 308, 7 Mbl St
Simone is invited to talk about "Using optics to measure subcellular dynamics and mechanics" at the at the BIMSB.
Imaging the Neuronal Microtubule Cytoskeleton
Microtubules are essential cytoskeletal components of neurons. They are fundamental to many neuronal processes, such as long-distance transport, but they also establish and maintain neuronal morphology. We are interested in dynamic as well as structural parameters of the microtubule cytoskeleton, such as microtubule number, length, distribution, orientation, and bundling throughout neuronal differentiation. The aim of this imaging-based project is to resolve the spatial organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton throughout neuronal differentiation with nanometer precision.
Individuals experienced / interested in neurobiology, biophysics, biochemistry or bioengineering are invited to apply. Please send a CV, a letter of motivation, and names of up to 3 references via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Keywords: Microtubule cytoskeleton, neuronal differentiation, superresolution microscopy, nanobodies, quantitative imaging.
Thanks to Helge Ewers for inviting Simone to give a Lise-Meitner-Kolloquium at the FU Berlin.
Adrian came from the Department of Systems Biology from Havard Medical School and will continue his work on DNA repair.
The Australian National University Canberra and The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin jointly hosted a symposium on 'Molecular Interactions in Malaria.' Thanks to the organizers Kai Matuschewski and Alex Maier for inviting Simone to speak and for encouraging Will to present a poster. Special thanks to Kevin Saliba for generous Zimtschnecken support.
Entertaining Abendkolloquium by WIKO fellow Tim Caro.

We, together with the Preibisch lab are looking for a postdoctoral research fellow to develop algorithms for quantitative analysis of large data sets from 4D time-lapse fluorescence microscopy and of single molecule imaging by TIRF microscopy.
Congratulations to our friend and WIKO-fellow Raghavendra Gadagkar, who receives Germany’s highest civilian honour, the Bundesverdienstkreuz.
First Tubulin labeling was successful. Cy3, Oregon Green and TAMRA!
