"For discovering how temperature constrains and drives cell replication and revealing that cells can cooperatively survive in extreme heat and cold, revising accepted views of temperature-dependent cell growth by integrating single-cell and genome-scale experiments with dynamical systems theory."


Diederik Laman Trip is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the ETH Zürich, working with Prof. Pedro Beltrao on the tissue-specificity of protein-protein interactions. Diederik received Bachelor and Master degrees in Mathematics and a Bachelor degree in Life Science and Technology from Leiden University. In 2022, he earned his Ph.D. cum laude from the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology, where he worked with Prof. Hyun Youk to study the fundamental principles that govern the viability and replication of budding yeast at extreme temperatures.
