International Day of Women and Girls in Science

On February 11 we are celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science! For this occasion we prepared a special video dedicated to all women and girls in science featuring our brilliant female group members. Hopefully this message will reach people at the right moment!

Podcast series about building a synthetic cell

Over the past months, many PhDs, postdocs, and PIs from Building a Synthetic Cell (BaSyC) consortium  have contributed to a podcast series about our efforts to build a synthetic cell. The Rathenau Instituut, in collaboration with designer Mies Loogman, created this 4-episode podcast series that is called ‘Herschept’ (In Dutch), and the final episode is out now! Ludo Schoenmakers is one of the PhDs from our group that contributed to this podcast series.

More information can be found here.

You can listen to all 4 episodes on Spotify.
