Dear PhD Candidates of the IEB,

The IEB PhD Council would like to invite you to the next IEB PhD meeting on Thursday the 21thof November (next week).

At this meeting three of your fellow PhDs will give a presentation:

  • Ana Patricia Sandoval from Ecology & Biodiversity will introduce her project: “The effect of environmental change on grassland’s functioning”
  • Mei Li from Ecology & Biodiversity will introduce her project: “Interaction between bacteria and soil born disease suppression”
  • Jun Lu from Microbiology will introduce his project: “Morphology and protein secretion in Aspergillus”

The meeting will start at 17:00 in Kruyt Z409 with drinks and pizza, we hope to see you there!

In addition to the Pizza Meeting we would like to inform you that the registration for Breaking Science 2020 is now open! Breaking Science is an annual science communication competition for young Utrecht researchers. Participants get a professional training on how to pitch their science before they compete in several rounds before a jury and an audience in Café Hofman, the winner of the final session will receive a prize of €1500. More info can be found here:, it would be great if one or more participants from the IEB would join this year!

Kind regards,

Peter Jan, Sanne, Tom, Violeta and Laura
