SFRR-E Young Investigator Award
This year’s Oxygen Club of California World Congress on the topic “Oxidants und Antioxidants in Biology” took place in Valencia (Spain). Of the 199 presented posters, the work of Markus Schosserer on a novel protein involved in the regulation of lifespan of various model organisms was awarded.
Markus Schosserer works at the Department of Biotechnology in the working group of Johannes Grillari on aging processes of human cells and simple model organisms, such as yeast and nematodes. Part of his research was already published in Nature Communications this year*.
