Paul, Florent and Shaofei join the group

The fourth incoming class of PhD students joins the group. Paul Chatelain (MRT fellowship) returned this October to continue his MSc work on protometabolism. Florent Noel (Région Alsace fellowship) and Shaofei Zhang (CSC fellowship) arrived in November to initiate a new project on directed Brønsted acid catalysis. A warm welcome to all three!

Dr. Marian Dryzhakov

Congrats to Marian Dryzhakov on successfully defending his thesis! He is the second PhD student to graduate from the group. After a few weeks more in the lab to submit papers, Marian will join Prof. Makoto Fujita’s lab at the University of Tokyo as a JSPS postdoctoral fellow.
