(07-11-2022) The research group Food Microbiology and Food Preservation celebrates the first anniversary of their PhD club by awarding 2 PhD students.

FMFP_PhD_Club_awards.jpgLast academic year the research group Food Microbiology and Food Preservation (FMFP) launched their monthly PhD club to improve cohesion between young PhD researchers and post-docs and to enhance dissemination of research results and good practices amongst each other.

Each month, a research topic and a more hands-on topic is presented by different PhD students, followed by a discussion and a more informal part. To celebrate its first anniversary and to acknowledge all participants for their efforts, 2 awards were elected by the club members.

The award for ‘best scientific presentation’ went to Xingchen Zhao with her presentation on ‘Prevalence, attachment ability and strength of Bacillus cereus and Bacillus thuringiensis on tomato’. The award for ‘best hands-on presentation was won by Pauline Spagnoli with her presentation on ‘Research pitching’. Congratulations to both of them!
