On Thursday, April 6 we had the pleasure to welcome Dr. Katja Hansen, postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. We highly appreciated her interesting talk on “Mitochondrial RNA spatial distribution changes as a response to transcription inhibition” and our PhD students enjoyed the pre-talk-meeting with Katja on scientific and career-related topics. Many thanks for visiting us and for sharing insights into a career as young mother and postdoc abroad. We wish all the best to Katja for both, her professional and private future.
