(See news and events before October 2019 below)
Where are they now? Meet DANDRITE alumna Anne von Philipsborn and learn about her academic research career from neuronal circuits to reproductive biology.
On 1 September, Sofie Winther Andersen is starting as new lab tech in Kitazawa group, where she will be part of establishing the new lab. Sofie has previously been part of team leader Hanne Poulsen's lab, so many of you already know her. Nonetheless, please give Sofie a warm welcome!
Valentina Khalil is starting as postdoc in Kitazawa group on 1 September. In her Ph.D., Valentina characterized that the subcortical thalamus-amygdalar pathway is necessary for the processing of innately aversive and learned threats. Now, she is ready for a new challenge. In her Postdoc, Valentina will investigate the transcriptional changes and the epigenetics regulation that occurs after memory formation. She will use a multidisciplinary approach, where optogenetics/chemogenetics, fiber photometry, and behavioral testing with high-end epigenomics and genomics sequencing technologies will be combined.
Kathrine Meinecke Christensen is joining Kitazawa group as a part time lab technician, where she will help with setting up the lab and getting Taro Kitazawa acquainted with Aarhus University and the DANDRITE environment.
Gilles Vanwalleghem is one of 13 new Associates invited to join AIAS. AIAS is a multidisciplinary research community of 23 current Associates, 39 AIAS-COFUND Fellows and 12 AUFF-Ukraine Research Fellows. The focus at AIAS is to enhance knowledge exchange and collaboration across fields and across research environments.
Rikke will be the primary contact person and group supporter to Yonehara, Denham, Jensen, Takeuchi and Nykjær-Group and give management support to the Neuroscience Theme and Poul Henning Jensen.
Furthermore, she will be working with the communication of DANDRITE activities on both web, newsletter and So-Me and the developing of communication strategies in collaboration with the Nordic EMBL Partnership’s Communications Officers.
Rikke has previously been employed as Communications Officer and Project Manager in Rector’s Office, where she has been working with both strategic communication, project planning and coordination of both internal and external communication.
During the internship Gabija Andreike will be acquainted with histological processing, microscope imaging, genotyping, miniprep/maxiprep and creation of implantable electrodes for electrical stimulation/recording and optic fibers for optical stimulation. Welcome Gabija!
Lonnie recently started as a laboratory technician trainee in Poul Henning Jensen’s group.
Lonnie started at the Department six month ago and has previously been in Morten Nielsen’s Group.
In PHJ Lab Lonnie will be working on protein purification, ELISA, Western Blotting, genotyping of mice and other relevant tasks. Welcome Lonnie!
The new DANDRITE Group Leader, Taro Kitazawa has finally arrived at AU and will now begin the process of setting up his new lab at MBG. Taro's lab will be working with understanding the epigenetic and transcriptional basis of neuroplasticity that underlies memory engram plasticity using rodents as model organism as of today. Click to read more about Taro and his research area. Welcome Taro!
Tim recently completed an MSc. degree in Neurosciences (University of Bremen), during which he specialized particularly in the fields of behavioural research and neuropsychopharmacology. In an interdisciplinary approach, he will investigate the underlying mechanisms that mediate stress-induced social memory modulation. Functional circuit investigation will be carried out via optical and chemogenetic manipulations. Congratulations on your new title Tim!
With training and an MSc. in Clinical Pharmacy (Uni. of Sunderland, UK) followed by an MPhil. in Translational Medicine (Helsinki University, Finland), Islam specialised in systems and circuit neuroscience in his Ph.D. In the PhD training he investigated behavioural effects of heterosynaptic plasticity and the circuitry of innate (and learned) defensive behaviors. Islam will investigate the circuitry that underlies social behaviours in mice and its dynamics relationship with stress, reward and learning. To this end, Islam will use his expertise in in-vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics/chemogenetics, fiber photometry and advanced behavioural testing.
Andreas is a Master’s Student in neuroscience from the University of Copenhagen. He will be joining Sadegh Nabavi’s group, and, under the supervision of Noëmie Mermet-Joret, he will write his thesis as part of a research project studying the neuronal circuits in the amygdala that mediate innate and learned fears. He is looking forward to joining the group and this exciting project.
Bernadett is a Master's Student in Bioinformatics at AU. She completed her bachelor in Molecular Bionics Engineering in Hungary in 2021 and came to Aarhus to get her Master's. "I always had an interest in neuroscience so after the first semester I applied to Jelena’s group. I am doing behavioural experiments and I will do the analysis part as well." Bernadetts plan is to write her master thesis with the Radulovic laboratory.
Neuroscience Academy Denmark (NAD) will recruit 16 excellent, highly motivated PhD Fellows to join a newly established neuroscience academy and PhD program to be launched the 1st of January 2023. The candidates should be 16 talented students eager to pursue a career in basic or clinical neuroscience research, and with the ambition to excel.
Application deadline is 22 August 2022.
Audrey will be working within the fields of immunology, neuroscience and gut microbiota, with the aim of investigating how the residing gut microbiota and/or induced intestinal inflammation affect the enteric nervous system in models of ASD. She will be exploring how the immune response is modulated by gut microbiota, and how specific immune cells are mobilized during enteric infection and/or neuronal lesions using e.g. in vivo imaging techniques. Welcome Audrey!
