Secondment ESR2 Vanessa Las Heras

Vanessa (ESR2) realized her 2nd secondment from 12/06/17 to 27/06/17. She left Cork in Ireland to Dijon in France.

Working in a new lab is always challenging, especially when you are learning a completely new technique. This experience enriched me as a researcher, as adaptation to new working environments is a crucial skill to develop as an early stage researcher. Even though I’m not fluent in French, the adaptation to the new country was considerably smooth, especially in Dijon, a region marked by its great gastronomy and wine history. Furthermore I was lucky to see the music festival in the streets of Dijon, where I saw some amazing jazz bands. The overall aim of my project is to study the behavior of Listeria in the gut ecosystem. With this secondment I was able to gain a broader perspective of Listeria response to other ecosystems it naturally inhabits, which allowed me to see the parallels between the two environments.
