Courtney Stairs joins Ettema-lab

One more member joins the Ettema-lab: Courtney Stairs.

Courtney did her PhD at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada) and recently joined Ettema-lab to investigate the diverse protist biology using single-cell genomics and transcriptomics.

In collaboration with Prof. Staffan Svard, she will compare the transcriptomes of the fish pathogen Spironucleus salmonicida in order to identify key adaptations that permit Spironucleus invasion.

Welcome Courtney, and good luck!
