Anne has presented her research in a 15 minute presentation together with her colleague Annie Vera Hunnestad from the Department of Chemistry at NTNU at the International Conference for Molecular Photosynthesis (ICMP) in Vancouver. This conference is organized by the ISPR. The presentation was followed by a lively discussion about iron acquisition strategies and conductive type IV pili.
Martin and Anne attended the International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes 2018 in Vancouver. The symposium presented a good opportunity to set up new collaborations and meet former colleagues. Anne had the change to present her research during the poster session. More information about the symposium can be found here.
Anne participated in the First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research (ePS-1) and the ePS-Young in Uppsala, Sweden. She presented her research with a poster and a presentation. Many participants were interested in her research, which led to interesting discussions. In addition, these meetings were a good opportunity for reconnecting with old colleagues and starting new collaborations.
Anne’s latest video about how useful and interesting microorganisms are, has recently been featured on the NTNU Facebook page. You can watch the video here. This video was produced as a part of the course “Communicating Scientific Research” in which Anne participated successfully.
Anne just returned from a very productive visit to the University of Oslo. Together with her Co-supervisor Hanne Winther-Larsen, she took SEM and TEM images from the different Synechococcus sp. PCC7002 strains to investigate the state of the pilins in wildtype and mutant strains. The images turned out to be very interesting and will be published soon.
Anne stayed with the group of Professor Matthias Futschik at the University of Plymouth in the UK during the last three weeks in order to learn RNAseq analysis with bioinformatic tools such as R. We hope to get better insight into iron acquisition of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 with the research methods Anne learned. Read more about Matthias’ research here.
