April 2019:

Franzi was excited and enthusiastic to attend the Microbiology Society Annual Conference in Belfast, Ireland. She gave a great talk on the 2nd day of the meeting which resulted in plenty of visitors to her poster. Overall a very positive experience for a first conference. PYFF7 is the next conference in the calendar for all the ESRs. YEASTDOC will join forces with the Aromagenesis and PAcMEN ITNs for a session on “PhDs in yeast and fungal science: education, communication and research”.
