3-year PhD Project on “Transcriptional regulation of intestinal stem cells during ageing”

Posted by on June 9th, 2020

The Korzelius lab has a funded position for a 3-year PhD at the University of Kent in Canterbury, U.K. We use the Drosophila intestine as a model system for age-related decline of organ function. Similar to the mammalian small intestine and colon, the fly intestine is maintained by a population of adult Intestinal Stem Cells[…]

Interested in Drosophila and adult stem cells? A 3-year DFG-funded PhD position available at the Leibniz Institute on Aging in Jena, Germany

A 3-year DFG-funded PhD-position is available at the Jasper Collaboration Group at the FLI-Leibniz Institute on Aging. Our work focuses on the Drosophila intestine as a model for adult stem cell regulation and aging ( In this DFG-funded project, we will focus on elucidating the mechanisms of entero-endocrine (EE) cell differentiation and the role of[…]

EDRC 2015 Meeting report: “Ich hab mein Herz in Heidelberg verloren”

Posted by on October 8th, 2015

Hundreds of fly researchers from Europe and around the world gathered in the picturesque German city of Heidelberg to attend the European Drosophila Research Conference or EDRC. The local organizers held the meeting at the beautiful historic “Stadthalle”(City Hall) of Heidelberg. I will briefly highlight some of the work that was presented at this meeting,[…]
