Evelina received and NWO-M1 grant from the Dutch Research Council

We will work on the spatiotemporal control of gene expression in Candida albicans during biofilm formation. We will develop RNA imaging tools to understand the molecular mechanisms controlling the differentiation of this amazing fungus.

An announcement for a PhD position will be published soon!

The first joint Tutucci & Gerber labs barbecue marked an important milestone

The Gene expression regulation family joined forces to celebrate the lab third birthday, successes, great students, but also failures and resilience.

To a bright and fluorescent future!

January 2022

Starting off the year with good news!

Together with Vasilis Kokkoris, assistant professor in the newly formed A-LIFE department, we have been awarded an early career support grant.

We will soon hire a PhD student to work on beautiful Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). We will develop imaging technology to elucidate the physiology of this mysterious fungus important for sustainable agriculture.

Info on the position will be published soon! Stay tuned!
