Tanneke den Blaauwen is co-organising the EMBO workshop "Bacterial Cell Division: Closing the Gap" 9-12 June 2019 in Lund, Sweden. Some BCB group members will present their work on this workshop. More information and registration on the EMBO website.
We welcome our new PhD candidate Xinwei Liu. He will work on the coordination of the synthesis of the cytoplasmic membrane and the peptidoglycan layer of Escherichia coli. We believe that antibiotic resistance is best prevented by antibiotics that inhibit multiple processes simultaneously, and this starts with understanding the mechanisms that can be targeted with antibiotics.
