“Super Summer” for PhD student Andreas Zimpel

Andreas Zimpel, a PhD student in the Wuttke Group, had many reasons to celebrate throughout the summer. On July 24th, Andi completed his thesis “External Surface Functionalization of MOF Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications” and was awarded his PhD. Only a few weeks later (and on his 31st birthday!) he was offered a position at Roche Diagnostics GmbH in Penzberg, Germany, where he will begin working on the 17th of September. But even these accomplishments are overshadowed by another milestone. On August 20th, Andi and his wife Marion welcomed their first child, Anna, into their lives. We wish Andi all the best in his career and personal life, and look forward to celebrating many more of his accomplishments in the future!
