When Vera Wagner started her PhD in the project P01 of the RTG, she had already worked on a related project in her master’s thesis at MLU, Plant Biochemistry in the group of Prof. Dr. Ingo Heilmann. Her thesis entitled “Regulatory lipids at the membrane-actin interface in polar growing plant cells” was recently awarded the price for the Best Master Thesis at MLU in Plant Sciences 2022 by the German Society for Plant Sciences (DBG). This is a great achievement and honor. Congratulations!
