In May, our doctoral student Maria Braun Cornejo, half German, half Spanish, tells us about her time at the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS), Germany.
In March, our doctoral student Lucia D’Auria, from Italy, tells us about her time in the biological chemistry and therapeutic applications (CBAT) group at the University of Strasbourg, France.
Get to know our researchers on our biweekly blog. Each month, a different PhD will share their personal experiences and opinions about their research.
This year we start sharing the experiences from our secondments. It’s an opportunity to work in a different environment within our consortium, be exposed to a new culture, and learn new skills.
In January, our doctoral student Antoine Lacour, from France, tells us about the time he spent at the University of Bergen (Norway), performing biological experiments such as protein expression and purification, stability assay, and binding constant determination using Bio-Layer Interferometry (BLI).
Concluding her participation in our blog this year, our doctoral student Maria shares her role within the MepAnti consortium and how she makes compounds that could lead to a drug candidate.
Stay tuned for next year’s blog with the opinions and personal experiences of our PhDs.
