With spring clearly on its way, we get to welcome new lab members in our group. Our salty lab is gaining lots of experience from different directions with these two experts. Charlotte Gommers has started her tenure track on how chloroplasts contribute to perception of a plant’s changing environment, and how their response helps plants deal with abiotic stress. As Assistant Professor she will not only focus on stressful, salty topics, but will also address chloroplast development and signalling for other environmental factors, and of course teach BSc and MSc students. Nora Gigli-Bisceglia will strengthen our team as a post-doc. Nora will use her experience on cell wall properties to provide some answers to pressing questions in our group. We wish both of them lots of luck and fun with their first steps into the field of salt stress.
