Melissa and Danalyn recently attended the annual IRTG International Plant Immunity Symposium at the Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen. Melissa gave a presentation about on-going work within the Monaghan Lab on Jacqueline's behalf, and Danalyn presented a poster on work she did during her time in our lab. IRTG 2171 PRoTECT is a collaborative program (that just received a $1.65M NSERC CREATE grant!) between the University of British Columbia and Georg-August-Universität, and this annual symposium allows members from groups within the program, among others, to highlight their work and showcase their efforts with their peers. There were many excellent posters and talks!
After spending the week in Göttingen, Melissa and Danalyn then travelled to Tübingen. Here, Melissa gave a seminar at the Universität Tübingen Centre for Molecular Biology of Plants, where Danalyn has just started her PhD within the Lahaye Group.
Danke und auf Wiedersehen!
