Dr Diederik Roest has been appointed a member of The Young Academy by the KNAW. Roest is interested in the mathematical properties of string theory. He enjoys linking abstract theory to actual experiments. Among the things he is investigating is whether clues for the existence of string theory can be found through observations on the very largest distance scales, such as background cosmic radiation. In 2008 Roest received a Vidi grant for his research: How stable are extra dimensions?
The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
The grant is for her project ‘Decoding the functional diversity of the yeast killer toxicome by CRISPRi in the multi-drug resistant fungal pathogen Candida glabrata’.
The Federation of European Biochemical Societies has awarded Dr. Kristina Haslinger, Assistant Professor in the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (GRIP ), the prestigious Excellence Award 2021 for early career principal investigators.
