The prize was awarded by Prof Gillian Bates who presented this years’ Mary Pickford lecture in a full house theatre. The theses were of a very high standard and the panel members were impressed by the quality of research conducted by PhD students in the CIP.
Rachael wrote her thesis on ‘Targeting the Ubiquitin Proteasome System to Develop Novel Therapeutic Approaches for Spinal Muscular Atrophy’, supervised by Tom Gillingwater.
Lukas completed his Phd in the group of Matt Nolan and Mark von Rossum (Informnatics) on ‘Modelling microcircuits of grid cells and theta-nested gamma oscillations in the medial entorhinal cortex’.
Congratulations to both and we wish you all the best for your future careers.
