The current members of the SILS Council are:
Elisa is working on the Train2Target project for the designing of new-generation antibiotics, in particular she is dissecting the BAM complex, essential for all Gram-negative bacteria.
Elisa is a PhD candidate at the BCB group, under the supervision of Tanneke den Blaauwen.
Eike is a PhD candidate in the Molecular Cytology group since January 2018. She will explore the role of small G proteins in Transendothelial Migration (TEM) under the supervision of Prof. Dorus Gadella and Dr. Joachim Goedhart. The aim is to gain spatial and temporal information about small G protein activity in the endothelial cell during TEM. Therefore, fluorescent protein based biosensors and advanced microscopy will be used.
Yorick is a PhD candidate in Molecular Cytology, in the lab of Renée van Amerongen.
Niels is a PhD candidate in the Molecular Biology and Microbial Food Safety group. In collaboration with the Wageningen Food and Biobased Research institute he works on the upgrading of syngas fermentation products into high-value chemicals.
Lisa is a PhD candidate studying the de novo acquisition of antibiotic resistance in E. coli with the supervision of Benno ter Kuile and Stanley Brul in the Molecular Biology and Microbial Food Safety group. Her project focuses on the impact of different cellular stress responses on the development of resistance upon exposure to sublethal levels of antibiotics.
Lisa is also SILS/FNWI representative in the Central PhD Council of the UvA.
Lichun is a PhD candidate in the group Plant Development & (EPI)Genetics. He works on petunia developmental biology.
Michelle is a PhD candidate in Plant Phsyiology. She is trying to unravel posttranscriptional regulatory networks that control metabolite biosynthesis in tomato trichomes, to a better understanding of the production of natural defense metabolites and provides tangible leads towards control over sustainable tomato production.
