Tessa has received a Vidi Grant from the Dutch Research Council to study the impact of viruses on archaeal cells. Thank you for this support of the group!
Together with scientists from Australia, Japan and the USA we will study the interaction between viruses, archaea and symbionts with the help of a Human Frontier Science Program Young Investigator Grant.
On March 3, Tessa received the Beijerinck Premie 2022 for her research on archaeal viruses. The Beijerinck Premie is awarded each year by the The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences to an early career researcher who performs excellent research in the field of Virology.
We are thrilled with the opportunity provided by the ERC starting grant that was awarded for our research on archaeal viruses. We will try to answer the question how archaeal viruses compete with each other for access to cellular resources. Thank you ERC! New job openings will follow this summer.
Tessa has been awarded the Early Career Award by the KNAW (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences). The KNAW presents twelve of these awards to researchers at Dutch universities annually. The award is intended for young researchers with innovative, original research ideas.
The lab recently moved to the University of Groningen (RUG) in the Netherlands, where we found an exiting new environment for our research on archaeal viruses at the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences & Biotechnology Institute. You can find us at the Linnaeusborg at the Zernike Campus.
Zaloa Aguirre Sourrouille joined the lab as a new Phd student. She works on a PhD project funded by the Hector Fellow Academy. We are really happy to welcome Zaloa in our group!
