New year, new group photo!
Congratulations to Liselot Dewachter, currently at the Center for Microbiology in Leuven (Belgium), for obtaining a prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie post-doctoral fellowship! Liselot will join our lab from the 1st of April 2019.
After exactly 1 year at the EMBL in the lab of Nassos Typas, Afonso will continue his research in our lab. Afonso is interested in generating mutant libraries using SUDOKO Tn-seq screens and using them to decipher the importance of the pan-genome in several bacteria.
This week we welcome Vincent to our team! Vincent will be working within the framework of a recently approved JPIAMR (Joint Program Initiative on antimicrobial resistance) project called DISRUPT where he will identify targets and mode of action of novel anti-biofilm agents in S. pneumoniae and S. aureus using a combination of high-throughput screens and computational analysis.
Congratulations to Dimitra for passing her mid-thesis exam! Thanks to Yolanda Schaerli and Tim van Opijnen for doing excellent jury work. Cheers!
The Veening lab is interested in understanding fundamental processes in the pneumococcus with the long-term goal to come up with new strategies to prevent and treat pneumococcal infections.
