Today is a good day

Today is a good day. Today I congratulate two of my ATLAS-colleagues from Uppsala. Torsten Günther and Helena Malmström. Both received fundings from Vetenskapsrådet for their projects respectively. It is good for them to secure the possibility for interesting research the next few years, it is good for ATLAS when its participants are successful in their careers, and it is good for archaeogenetics in this area of the world to be able to keep two scientists with these qualities. Thus, two very competent researchers with a background in the ATLAS-project are now stepping out (but not further away than allowing for some good collaboration I hope…) and setting up their own archaeogenetic operations here.
