Outstanding degree and well-chosen promotional theme led to success

For his excellent result in studying Chemistry and Chemical Biology at the University of Jena Martin Klapper gets the Hoechst doctoral fellowship which includes 40.000 euros. Working in the group of Pierre Stallforth his research will focus on the interaction between the amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum and the bacteria in its environment.
