We associate young colleagues working in related research areas, who plan to set up their first independent lab in the near future. They are guests at our regular FOR2333 meetings and will be offered individual mentoring by experienced PIs of the network. Our current mentees are:
Dr. Helena Jambor (Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden) has bee a late-stage postdoc in the lab of Pavel Tomancak where she used high-throughput methods to assess RNA localization in Drosophila (Jambor et al. eLife, 2015). Currently, she is doing a sabbatical at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin.
Dr. Inga Loedige (EMBL Heidelberg) is a late-stage postdoc in the lab of Marina Chekulaeva at the Max-Delbrück Zentrum in Berlin. She is interested in the role of TRIM proteins in the localization of hunchback mRNA in Drosophila (Loedige et al., Genes Dev. 2014; Loedige et al. Cell Reports 2015).
