New webpage for the group of Ruxandra Bachmann

Congratulations Ruxandra Bachmann!!!



We are proud and happy to report that Ruxandra got awarded the very prestigious SNF Förderprofessorship of the Swiss National Science Foundation. From this fall on she will be an independent assistant professor at the Institute of Molecular Genetics. Luckily she will continue to be associated with us via her fish work. Incidentally I started my academic career with the same professorship. Congratulations and all the best for starting your completely independent research team.
