Post-diploma studies in Germany

The German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU) offers funding opportunities for post-diploma studies in the area of environmental protection in Germany. DBU is one of Europe's largest foundations promoting projects for the development of environmental protection technologies, scientific research, and conservation of natural and cultural values. A scholarship at EUR 1250 per month is offered for 6–12 month studies at German scientific research centres, universities, industrial companies, ministries, institutions and  NGOs. DBU invites applications from specialists of natural sciences, engineers, economists, lawyers, and all others related to natural and environmental protection in their native countries or in the European Union. Application requirements are available at https://www.studinfo.lt/stipendijos/dbu.

A guest from Spain

29 March through 6 April, P. B. Šivickis Laboratory of Parasitology hosted Prof. María Ángeles Rojo from Miguel de Cervantes European University (Valladolid, Spain). For 10 years the professor has been engaged in molecular investigations of avian haemosporidian parasites. Infections caused by these blood parasites are widespread in Europe and Lithuania and pose threat to wildlife. During the visit, Prof. Rodríguez got acquainted with the methodology of diagnosing avian haemosporidian parasites, which is created and successfully used in Nature Research Centre. Also, further cooperation in avian blood infection diagnosis and prophylaxis was discussed.

Traineeship of researchers from Vienna

On 9–13 April 2018, P. B. Šivickis Laboratory of Parasitology hosted traineeship of researchers from the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna (Vienna, Austria). The university is developing a modern in situ hybridization method which is applied in avian haemosporidian parasite investigations. Blood-borne parasites that belong to Plasmodium, Haemoproteus and Leucocytozoon genera and cause fatal avian diseases are spread in Lithuania and investigated by the Nature Research Centre. When developing these agents of blood diseases can block brain capillaries and cause cerebral ischemic changes often leading to bird death. During the visit, Prof. Herbert Weissenböck discussed cooperation possibilities with a researchers' team headed by Acad. Gediminas Valkiūnasd, while doctoral student Tanja Himmel and Dr Josef Harl studied parasite identification, their life cycles and particularities of molecular diagnostics....
