16.11.12, VBC PhD Awards 2012: 2 DK RNA Biology members win!

This year’s VBC PhD Awards were announced on 9th November and we are very proud to congratulate Martina Dötsch and Johannes Popow to their success!

Johannes Popow started his PhD studies in Javier Martinez’ lab in January 2008 and Martina Dötsch started her PhD studies in Renée Schroeder’s group in February 2008. Both finished their PhDs in November 2011. It seems as though this was a good time period!

Congratulations also to the other 3 winners: Anita Kazda, Sebastian Krüttner, and Magdalena Paolino!

We wish all winners good luck and success with their future career!
