In order to give other of our PhD students the opportunity to take on the role of spokesperson, we decided to elect new spokespersons one and a half years after the start of our graduate program. Now I have the pleasure to inform you that the election of the new  spokespersons was successful: for the next one and a half years Büsra Kizmaz (Cell Biology) has been elected as the first and Alexandra Hilse (Nanophysiology) as the second spokesperson of the PhD students. We are pleased that both candidates have accepted the election and look forward to a successful collaboration.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our former PhD student spokespersons Johannes Ebding (Zoology) and Fiorella Mazzone (Nanophysiology) for their efforts in supporting the activities of our graduate program. Many thanks, you did a great job!
