Welcome to Karine Baumer !

Bonjour à tous,

je viens de joindre le groupe du Prof. Johannes Larsch en tant que Lab Technician.

J’ai un backgrund principalement en gestion de laboratoire, qualité et en biologie moléculaire dans la recherche contre le cancer et en génétique forensique.

Je suis l’heureuse maman d’un petit garçon de 5 ans avec qui j’aime partager mes passions pour le ski, la nature, le camping et surtout griller un bon cervelas au coin du feu !

Au plaisir de vous rencontrer tous et de vous découvrir!


Welcome to Danin Dharmaperwira !

Hi everyone, my name is Danin and I recently started at the Larsch lab. 
In addition to my love for spicy foods, I leave you with some spicy opinions:

  • Spaghetti is pasta for adults, those who cut it are children
  • Cats are cute, but slightly overrated
  • Out of all fruits, the banana is the best

Please feel encouraged to debate whether you agree with these opinions.

Welcome to Yoëlle Hilbers !

Hi everyone! I am Yoëlle Hilbers, a plant biologist from the Netherlands. I studied Biology (Bachelor) and Molecular & Cellular Life Sciences (Master) at Utrecht University, where I did research on how bolting and rosette growth habit are regulated by ATH1 and PIF4 in the Shoot Apical Meristem. To finish of my Master’s, I also did an internship at Stanford University where I studied development of stomata under the regulation of SPCH and FAMA.

Now, I am happy to join Prof. Christian Fankhauser’s lab as a PhD student, to continue working on light regulated plant growth and development!

Some things about me: I love spending time in nature, and I am looking forward to do a lot of hikes in the area and swimming in Lac Léman! I also enjoy being creative (painting/photography), and like to combine work and art by making scientific illustrations 🙂

I hope to see you around!
