The IHA waves goodbye to Dan Ackerman, who has joined Celeste Simon's
group at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Pittburgh,
USA as a postdoc to work on HIF signaling and cancer. Also leaving the
lab is Sara Valentini. Both Sara and Dan obtained their Ph.D. at the IHA
(David Gems's lab). Also, Kathrin Schmeisser, a visiting Ph.D. student
from the University of Jena (Michael Ristow's lab) returned home after a
4 month research visit. This month Dr Alex Benedetto joined the lab to
work on the biology of sex differences in ageing in C. elegans. Alex
worked previously on the genetics of manganese transport and toxicity in
C. elegans with Prof. Michael Aschner at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
