Paper Dinner

We had dinner together to celebrate the acceptance of our paper. We revealed that mitochondria-endoplasmic reticulum contacts in reative astrocytes promote vascular remodeling: here you go 😉 Congrats especially to the first author Jana who left us for good to explore non-academic job possibilties. We miss her a lot, wish her all the best and hope for a lot of coffee visits.

Visit at Leica Headquarters

We visited our former colleague Patric at the Leica headquarters in Wetzlar. We were invited to test a new microscope which will be available for customers in the coming year. It was a pleasure to get to know the company and the internal construction and designing steps which are necessary for the implementation process.

Buddy Bash

We decided to go for a team event called „buddy bash“ during our lab trip day and it was  a good decision 😉 It was a day full of adventure and laughter. We split in two teams and competed in plenty of mini games against each other. We needed physical power, intelligence and a good team spirit to complete the tasks. The „happy wild types“ were leading before the last game but the „(sick) knockouts“ fought till the end and could tie the score. So everyone could enjoy the early dinner at the brewery without grief ;).

SFN 2019 in Chicago

This year the SFN conference took place in Chicago and it was all about mitochondria – at least for the Bergami Lab. Matteo and Elisa were invited to talk about their work in the Minisymposium „Pleiotropic Mitochondria: The Influence of Mitochondria on Neuronal Development and Disease“. Kristiano (not in the picture) presented his work about mitochondria dynamics in interneurons during the poster sessions.
