Congratulations Mareike Schell! She has just defended her PhD thesis where shad had shown how a Lactobcillus treatment affects emotional behaviour in diet-induced obesity.
Dr. Mareike Schell's next station is the Biddinger Lab at the Boston Children's Hospital in Boston, USA. We wish her all the best for her future research endeavours!
The following dates are confirmed:
The MEM Team participates at the open house in the Potsdam Science Park. For further information visit here.
Our PhD student Simran Chopra just had her abstract accepted to present a poster during this year's International Congress of Neuroendocrinology held August 7-10 in Glasgow, Scotland. Looking forward to your presentation!
Congratulations to Robert Hauffe, PhD graduate of the Kleinridders Lab! He was just awarded a price for his dissertation by the German Diabetes Association (Deutsche Diabetes Gesellschaft DDG). The DDG honors up to three outstanding dissertations in the diabetes field each year. Read more here.
Congrats to Michaela Rath and Robert Hauffe, who have just published their paper "Obesity Hinders the Protective Effect of Selenite Supplementation on Insulin Signaling" in Antioxidants.
Read all about how pre-existing obesity precludes beneficial effects of a selenite supplementation here.
