HFSP Long-term Postdoctoral Fellowship for Timurs Maculins.


Timurs Maculins was awarded a Long-term Postdoctoral Fellowship by the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP). The fellowship enables young researchers to broaden their horizon by changing to a new field of study whilst simultaneously moving to another country. Accordingly, Tim recently relocated from the High-Throughput Screening centre in AstraZeneca, Macclesfield, UK to Frankfurt-am-Main. HFSP fellowship will support Tim's research at the Institute for Biochemistry II (Goethe University) that is aimed at understanding the fundamental mechanisms by which human bacterial pathogens invade host cells, leading to improved knowledge of cellular processes upon bacterial infection and more effective antibacterial therapy.
