Dr. Yasin Dagdas has received the 2018 Biochemical Society Early Career Research Award for Cells. Biochemical Society Early Career Research Awards are given biannually in different fields and highlight outstanding work by scientists in the early stages of their career. Professor Colin Bingle, Acting Chair of the Awards Committee, said: “The Biochemical Society Awards are the perfect way to honour exceptional scientists within the bioscience community. As ever, the entry criteria are tough and the standards high and the awards are a real tribute to the talent within our community."

In two publications in the latest issue of Science, the group of Youssef Belkhadir from the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, along with international collaborators, have worked out the molecular details of two important signaling pathways and identified new paradigms for how receptor signaling can occur.


Der Molekularbiologe Michael Nodine möchte den Bauplan von Pflanzen entschlüsseln. Mit diesem Wissen könnte man Mais, Zucchini, Weizen und Co. resistenter gegenüber den Auswirkungen des Klimawandels machen.


We are happy to announce that Yasin Dagdas will join the GMI as group leader starting January 2017. Yasin’s group will combine evolutionary analyses with mechanistic tools to understand the roles of selective autophagy in plants.
