We are very happy to welcome a new SINGEK Early Stage Researcher: Sara Castillo
Sara will be working on the research project “NOVEL MICROFLUIDICS FOR THE STUDY OF PREVIOUSLY UNCULTURED MICROEUKARYOTES” under the supervision of Dr. Stefano Pagliara (University of Exeter). In particular, she will use microfluidic devices in order to evaluate the single-cell behaviour and potential community linkages of the smallest free-living eukaryotic cell, Ostreococcustauri. This will provide an insight about population dynamics and the necessary understanding for its proper protection and conservation and applications in biotechnology.
We are looking forward to a successful research cooperation in the upcoming months!
