Luís, Pooja, Liliane and Nikola were lucky enough to attend and be selected for oral presentations at ISSY35 in Antalya, Turkey. They were great ambassadors for YEASTDOC and after the hard work was over they caught up with Paola and John for some sightseeing. Next year’s meeting is in Vienna and YEASTDOC will be there in full force.
On European Researchers’ Night this year, all of our ESRs were in Berlin attending project events. This left Paola Branduardi to fly the flag alone at the MEETmeTONIGHT event in Milan. Nevertheless she talked about Pooja and Luís’ research and afterwards chatted to the public about yeast and the circular economy.
YEASTDOC had a busy week at the 7th conference on Physiology of Yeast and Filamentous Fungi in Milan, Italy. All of the ESRs presented their research through posters, flash posters (Angela & Luís) or talks (Lorena, Toni & Carmen). In the middle of the conference we had an event co-hosted by the ITN cluster on microbial biotechnologies for food and biochemicals. ESRs and PIs from YEASTDOC, Aromagenesis and PAcMEN were joined by a variety of guest speakers to hear about exciting funding opportunities, career paths, and research from Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions. The whole event was a great chance to discuss exciting science, network with other scientists, and catch up with old friends. Well done to all of the organisers particularly YEASTDOC PI Paola Branduardi!
