FABIans, Dr Lavinia Kisten, Ms. Jenna-Lee Price and Ms. Nombulelo Qikani, recently visited the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Germany as part of the MycoBiomics projects funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Research and Innovation Staff Exchanges (MSCA-RISE) grant. The purpose of this visit was to screen various fungal strains from South Africa for secondary metabolite production. The team was given training in basic analytical chemistry. The team was warmly welcomed by Prof. Marc Stadler who oversaw the visit to Germany. We would like to thank the team at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research for their hospitality and we look forward to strengthening our collaboration.
