Congratulations @MaxFottner for winning an award from the Biochemistry section @GDCh_aktuell for your work on site-specific ubiquitylation at #AdvancesChemBio. We @klanglab are all very proud of you!

December 2020
Congratulations Dr. Fottner!  Thanks so much for your work and input, which was also essential for our #ERCCoG. I really enjoy working with you and I am very proud of the scientist you are/have become.

Extremely happy and excited that the @klanglab got an #ERCCoG grant to develop new tools to crack the ubiquitin code!! Thanks to my awesome group, my collaborators as well as reviewers/committee and @ERC_Research! 2020 shows how important basic science funding is for us all!

So the big news is out! I am really excited to announce that I have accepted a full professorship for Chemical Biology @ETH_en @ETH_DCHAB and that the @klanglab will be moving to Switzerland next year! Very much looking forward to the adventure and to new collaborations and friendships!
