Celebrating Our Graduates’ Success and Looking Forward

We are delighted to celebrate the successful completion of Sebastian B’s, Sarah’s, and Anne’s bachelor theses in 2023. Their dedication and hard work have brought them to this significant milestone, and we couldn’t be prouder.

Sebastian B continues his journey with us, embarking on Master of Science studies focused on genetics in Geobacter metallireducens. He will delve into gene deletions and insertions to understand more deeply the metabolism and mechanisms of extracellular electron transfer in Geobacter.

Sarah, too, is continuing her journey with us for her MSc research, where she will study methanogens’ survival and possibly growth under oxygen. This follows her remarkable work during her BSc studies, where she isolated a methanogen from aerobic Rømø tidal sediments, marking a significant step towards understanding these organisms’ adaptability.

We are excited about what the future holds and the discoveries Sebastian and Sarah will make in their master’s research. Here’s to their next chapter of exploration and discovery!
