Prize for best poster presentation
- 15 June 2016
Postdoctoral Research Assistant Yiyan Zheng has won one of three prizes for best poster presentations.
This award is for Yiyan’s work on FER kinase as a potential therapeutic target in ovarian cancer to enhance the efficacy of the chemotherapeutic drug taxol on microtubules. Yiyan won this prize in competition with more than 270 scientists.
The prize has special significance as the conference coincided with the 50th anniversary for the discovery of tubulin, the building block of microtubules.
Yiyan’s work has been funded by Target Ovarian Cancer (http://www.targetovariancancer.org.uk).
