Congratulations, Indra!

On Tuesday, 18th of August, 2020, Indra Simons successfully completed her doctorate. During her thesis Indra established tools for the differentiated investigation of individual human Autophagy-related protein 8 (Atg8) paralogs, especially for GABARAP, and subsequently used them for the investigation of their specific roles, e.g. during autophagy-unrelated events like receptor trafficking. Indra is a team member of the SFB 1208 subproject B02 and within the Graduate School "MB Train". She was supervised by Prof. Dr. Dieter Willbold and Dr. Silke Hoffmann.
Again, due to the current restrictions, her defence took place only in the presence of the examiners. Nevertheless, we congratulated her very cordially with a Corona-compliant "mini celebration" in the open air. We are happy that Indra will continue to strengthen our team for a few months and wish her all the best for the future!
