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!
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!
Congrats to Flo, for finishing and defending his master thesis!
We are very happy to get to keep him a couple more weeks as a research assistant.
Kudos to Kristina on her first review, published in Current Opinion in Chemical Biology! 10.1016/j.cbpa.2020.07.012
Congratulations Marie on your successful PhD defense!!! We wish you all the best for your post-doc.
We congratulate Steffi for passing her final exams as a technical assistant. Though we are sad to see her leave, wa are sure she will be awesome in her new job. All the best, your KLang Lab.
We welcome Sophia as our new technical assistant in training. We are sure she will do great and be an asset for our lab.
