New BIMat Ph.D. student

We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Goodness Osondu-Chuka to BIMat. Being the most recent person to overcome both CoVID and Austrian immigration hurdles to join us, she officially started her Ph.D. on the 15th of October.

Goodness is a microbiologist who will work as one of two Ph.D. students in the “Breath project”. Breath is a joint project with Dr. Olivier Guillaume at TU Wien to better understand biofilm formation in cystic fibrosis and test a new hypothesis on improving antibiotic treatments of this severe chronic illness.

Goodness will also be the third BIMat member to join the BioMatInt doctoral school.

Once more, welcome, Goodness!
