Jens has been elected into the National Academy of Science in the USA. US-NAS is one of the most prestigious academies in the world, and this is a very special recognition reserved only for the very best among scientists. This is a recognition of Jens’ life-long track record of top scientific achievements and pioneering contributions, many of which took place here at Chalmers SysBio. We are therefore all very proud of Jens and extend to him our warmest congratulations.
Florian David and Verena Siewers received a Vinnova Grant for Protein Research in Biologics in a collaboration project with Astra Zeneca.
Jens Nielsen has been appointed as Honorary Professor at Jiangnan University, which is the leading university in China in the area of Food Science and in Fermentation Technology.
Nature has just featured a correspondence piece on SysBio core values as an example of actively building a working culture based on mutual cooperation, communication and respect. “Congratulations to our Core Values Team, and all SysBio members for adopting and supporting our core values”, says Ivan Mijakovic.
Dina and Jens added: “Desired organizational culture does not occur spontaneously, it is a result of a permanent effort of the leadership and the team. In our case, we have been actively working for more than 10 years to ensure that we create and maintain the diverse culture that we can be proud of.”
